Rates of heart failure rising in the United States
from HealthDay News
Heart failure rates are increasing in the United States, and cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death, even as the mortality rate from cardiovascular disease is falling, according to a new report from the American Heart Association (AHA). The number of American adults with heart failure rose by 800,000 over five years, say the authors of the AHA's "2017 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics Update." The number of people with heart failure is expected to rise by 46 percent by 2030. Cardiovascular disease and stroke are the two top causes of death worldwide. In the United States, cardiovascular disease is first and stroke is fifth.
