Type-2-Diabetes-and heart diseases

Women with Type 2 diabetes are twice as likely to have coronary heart disease compared to men,according to american Heart Association “Cardiovascular disease may be more deadly for women with Type 2 diabetes than it is for men

While scientists do not fully understand how the inherent hormonal differences between men and women affect risk,they do know that some risk factors for heart disease and stroke affect women differently than men and there are disparities in how these risk factors are treated

The statement said that the women with Type 2 diabetes have heart attacks at earlier ages than men;are more likely to die after a first heart attack then men; and are less likely to undergo procedures to open clogged arteries,such as angioplasty or coronary artery bypass grafting then men.

It also points out that African american and Hispanic women with Type 2 diabetes are disproportionately affected by coronary artery disease and stroke as compared to men with Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is associated with the body not producing enough insulin to control blood sugar levels

While the new scientific statement clarifies some diabetes related sex difference in heart and blood vessel disease,more research is necessary according to the authors
