Mayo Clinic internist: Can you die of a broken heart?

By

Dr. Gregory Hanson is a Mayo Clinic internist with specialty interests in geriatric and palliative medicine. "I think if you want to say a broken heart is, I'm not taking care of myself because I'm so sad, and down, I'm not eating right, I'm not taking my medications, I'm not getting out — all those things that go with that, then the answer is yeah, because it's affecting everything that you do," Hanson said.
