Heart and Circulatory Diseases
More men than women now die from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK (85k versus 83k in 2017) - female mortality rates have been falling more quickly than male.
Of the 43k+ who die prematurely of heart and circulatory diseases in the UK each year (before their 75th birthday), around 30k are male (but please note that life expectancy is also higher for women).
Coronary heart disease (the most common heart/circulatory disease) is the single biggest killer for men in the UK, responsible for 1 in 7 of all male deaths and 1 in 6 premature deaths.
There are an estimated 3.9 million males living with the daily burden of heart and circulatory diseases in the UK (3.5 million females).
