It is now acknowledged that women differ greatly from men in how their bodies are affected by major diseases. For example, coronary artery disease has different risks, symptoms and consequences. Some women face having their condition deteriorate just before they menstruate because of changes in the way hormonal variations affect the way the prevention medication is metabolized. Men are twice as likely to develop coronary artery disease if they have diabetes whereas women are 4 to 6 times as likely. Also, male brains contain more serotonin than female brains thus making them less prone to depression. More research needs to be done in the area of gender-specific health differences.
