What Is Heart Disease?

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart, which can lead to a heart attack. If healthy lifestyle changes aren’t made, the condition will continue to worsen. CHD is the leading cause of death in the United States for women, according to the American Heart Association.
