Question: Are young people more at risk of having a heart attack? Arturo (Chile).
Answer: It is not true that a young person is more prone. On the contrary, heart attacks are more frequent in older people, with more risk factors and older arteries. Whether you die of a heart attack does not depend on the type of heart attack or the age of the patient, but on the appearance of arrhythmias or other complications associated with the heart attack.
