Diabetes in Women: Pathophysiology and Therapy

JAMA. 2011;305(8):830-833. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.197

All human beings do not respond in the same way to identical treatments. This may be particularly true when assessing differences in response between the sexes, although little research has been conducted to test this hypothesis. Diabetes stands out as an area in which clear differences exist in terms of body composition, hormonal milieu, and the psychological variations between the sexes that accentuate differences in response to a complex, chronic, metabolic disease. Thus, a book focused on this topic seems warranted.
