Women with diabetes at greater risk of CHD than men

23 Jun 2014Registered users

A recent large meta-analysis has confirmed that women with diabetes have more than a 40% higher risk of incident coronary heart disease (CHD) than men. For GPs this is a timely reminder to consider CHD as a high risk in women with diabetes, and to treat risk factors vigorously. This is especially important because routine screening in the healthy population accustoms us to women being generally at lower risk than men using the current CHD risk tools.
