The investigators found that people in optimal heart health in middle age lived an average of four years longer than their peers who had at least two risk factors for heart disease. In addition, the people with optimal heart health. During middle age, factors that leave you prone to a heart attack or stroke — high blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking — may raise your risk of developing dementia a quarter-century later, new research suggests. All three things affect your vascular (blood vessel) health. It can be a really stressful time as women can find themselves up against heart problems and even sleep deprivation. “The words ‘midlife crisis’ can put a negative spin on this.

Good heart health at age 50 is linked to a reduced risk of dementia later in life, stated study of British adults published by The BMJ today. Good cardiovascular health at age 50 is associated. There’s no question that heart palpitations at menopause are related to changing hormones. However, my experience has been that in many midlife women heart palpitations are primarily from increasing heart energy. by KatieP, in category Health | Midlife When I decided to enter a body-building competition in my forties, there was something the trainers and seasoned competitors forgot to tell me.

  • Excellent video! To me, medicine is characterized by a few things including 1) the notion of fear and the unknown and 2) excess and these are encapsulated in life-and-death. Those are distinctly different from tech, which for the most part is a nice to have but can live without it. This incompatibility amplifies the potential fear and this in itself create more excess. If Apple does not play its cards right, they could have just opened a giant can of worms. And the FDA won’t always be run by people who will allow this kind of thing.

  • I have an idea… seeing so many body builders have died… Get it through your heads that steroids KILL!!! Even the biggest, Most well known of you!

  • Absolutely excellent video highlighting the problem of having too much information, with too little context, with no frames of reference, and a lack of a sense of proportion caused by corporate interests

  • Ok mr DR 1 wrong info what you have: these days heart attack and stroke common in young adults especially in middle east and Asia.

  • How can you be unbiased when you are a cardiologist? That’s like doing a video about printed food when you are a farmer.
    The fact that you don’t use advertisement on your channel doesn’t mean you are not going to get paid.
    Totally unbelievable start of the video. I stopped watching.

  • I am a 71 year old male. I purchased an Apple Watch about a

    year and a half ago. When I was running through the various applications I

    tried the ECG function. In less than a minute the watch came back informing me

    that I was in Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)…I immediately contacted my doctor for an appointment. She confirmed that I was indeed in AFib and needed to be treated. I am still undergoing treatment. Thank you Apple!

  • Thanks for this superb video. I had considered the iWatch, when I saw them promoting this feature, but was in two minds so left it. This is a great analysis of the good and bad and a must-watch before you buy the….erm….watch!! Undoubtedly, given time, the tech will mature and I guess it needs early adopters to drive that so I may well get on board just for the curiosity value. But this video really gives context on how to interpret what the thing is telling you rather than taking it at face-value (oh dear another watch-related pun). I really enjoy your channel and content.

  • Assuming we get a lot more data points and we have to pay our doctors anyway it makes more sense to monitor the user remotely and write a kind of monthly or annual report. Documenting pains and injuries by hand then having the tool periodically ask you the reported pain or injury is progressing could gather useful long term data. The doctor could then fill the slow weeks in his schedule with easily cancelled non-urgent consultancy to talk about the problems. I bet most people forget 90% of their small pains and injuries within 2 years.

    For example: How often did you have a headache and how long did they last? My answer would be one time every 1-3 years or so and uhh maybe 1 week or 2 months? But when I have one I’m pretty sure I’m having it. Or: Concentration problems? Dizziness? Lack of energy? Insomnia?

    A data set not very interesting to the user but eventually a doctor might see something in it.

  • I know you’re not a review channel, but what do med and/or nursing students really need in terms of stethoscopes. Is the baseline now really the littmann cardiology IV?

  • I had to get rid of my Fitbit, it was enabling so much health anxiety it was actually making me ill. I have a family history of heart conditions, but I personally have no symptoms and have had medical tests to check for anything all healthy. I am an active young person. However, just knowing about my family history was the tiny spark to check my Fitbit obsessively. I would check the data just to “catch anything early”. The anxiety was actually giving me palpitations and so made the anxiety worse. Sometimes too much access to information can be a bad thing, especially if like me you are prone to hypochondria.

  • I have another option, tell pome the main reason people are at risk of stroke or hart attack is the consumption of animal products and advise him to at lest reduce his consumption and tell him plant based diets help with athletic performance so his MMA training will be helped as well

  • Thank you for this informative or educational video. Could you tell if it has any advantages to wear an Apple Watch or another heart rate monitoring device while running? I’m considering to buy an Apple Watch in the near future mainly for other reasons but would like to ask if it’s useful to be warned when my heart rate is getting to high?

  • I know this is a very old video so you may not see this but…I had covid back in March, developed pneumonia and then post viral fatigue. I’m 5 months in and trying to use BP / HR / HRV / Pacing etc to try and find a new baseline so I stop having relapses because of Post Exertional Malaise (and of course recover and not end up with CFS / ME). Garmin have added a ‘body battery’ function to their wearables. this uses a combination of data (HR / HRV / Sleep…etc) to let you know how much ‘energy’ you have. I thought this might be a helpful second source of data for decision making day to day (outside of perceived exertion). Yay? or Nay?

  • Subsequent to this video, it turns out that one of the main benefits of the Apple Watch is detecting V-Tach. Ventricular Tachycardia, or rapid heart beat. There are quite a few people who were alerted by their Apple Watch that their rhythms were faster than 200 bpm.
    In MY case I was the recipient of one as I had a STEMI in 2016. Having even a single-lead ECG with me at all times has been a RELIEF rather than a worry. Also, it detected a problem for ME, too. In January, my rate accelerated to 170 for no discernible reason. My normal rate ( with meds ) is 55-65.
    Turned-out that I had a bad reaction to some cold medications. I don’t think that would constitute a false alarm….

  • Exactly the reason I go to a doctor only if I feel miserable.

    On Asterix, there is a scene where 12 doctors are proposed to kill the patient. This is so iconic!

  • This might be useless information but maybe someone will read this and have a life changing discovery.

    I actually purchased a Galaxy Gear S3 Frontier for this very reason. I was having abnormal heart beats and I was trying to figure out what was causing it without going to the DR’s office and shelling out big bucks for a potentially simple answer. Over time, the watch didn’t show me much of anything. I would have these ectopic beats when walking, sitting down, running, biking, showering, or even doing absolutely nothing. Just randomly I would feel a bout of intense anxiety and then my heart would quiver and skip a beat before beating hard. Sometimes, when I was extremely unhealthy (about 300+lbs) it would happen back to back when I would over heat from the heat outside or from lifting something too heavy.

    I was stumped. No idea how this keeps happening but I keep looking for signs or symptoms that would link all of it together. Then one day, I figured it all out: I have a milk protein allergy. Not lactose intolerance, a true allergy. My symptoms of the consumption of milk was anxiety and ectopic beats. I figured this out because one morning I had just yogurt for breakfast before going on a 4 mile bike ride. That ride, it was 50% ectopic beats. The very next day I decided to make eggs, bacon and potatoes before going for a 10 mile bike ride. No weird beats happened. Since then, I’ve noticed that if I eat something with cheese, milk, yogurt or anything with dairy, I have mild beats every now and again.

    So while the watch I purchased is cool and I love it, it did nothing but feed my anxiety around my health. If you decide to buy a smart watch, do not purchase it for health reasons. Do it for the features and technology because no watch in existence can diagnose a heart condition. If you’re worried about your health, try removing certain foods from your diet and losing weight. If that doesn’t help, make an appointment with your PCP or Cardiologist to get a professionals opinion on the problem. Do not let Dr. Google scare you into becoming a hypochondriac for no reason.

  • As a physicist myself I have to say that I disagree with most physicians about the notion that more data does more harm. It is your job as a physician to confirm the validity and verify that data with more data.

  • Because of the Apple Watch I have gotten major health anxiety it all started when my watch keep telling me that at times during the day my heart rate is in the mid to high 100s for a quick second. I have gotten all sorts of test, ekg, 2week heart monitor, echo, stress test all of them coming back negative but what hasn’t resolved is my constant nervousness thinking what if they missed something.

  • I started off being sceptical of what you were going to say and by the end of the video I am now completely convinced. There are infinite other things you can do to improve your health which will have a much greater impact than buying an Apple Watch.

  • Superb video and quality information and explanation!!
    My friend (she’s very healthy and fit) purchased the apple watch for the ecg and other stats. I’m anti-stat gadget and only trust medical professionals. This is because I’m an HCM patient (just slight) but only monitor heart rate on an old school monitor when I work out to keep below a target. People trust a $400 gadget/toy over medical professionals, makes no sense to me.

    Thanks for and excellent explanation.
