Study: Women are more likely to suffer from dementia and men are more likely to suffer from ischemic heart disease

Scientists have found that men are more susceptible to fatal diseases, and women are more susceptible to long-term chronic diseases.

The Lancet medical journal indicates that women are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases that appear with age, while men are more likely to become victims of acute and fatal diseases and injuries.

The researchers say: “Historically, studies of women’s health focus primarily on sexual and reproductive function, but despite their importance, they do not cover the full range of problems that women experience throughout their lives. Our analysis reveals, for example, a disproportionately high rate of mental illness among women, as well as “Non-communicable diseases, which women are most vulnerable to, remain in the shadows in funding research, disseminating literature, and, most importantly, in health care planning.”

In this study, the researchers relied on international medical statistics for the years 1990-2021 from various countries and regions of the world called the “Global Burden of Disease,” using an indicator such as DALY rates - the “Total Burden of Disease,” which collects the time a person loses due to illness or premature death.

The researchers studied 20 main causes of the disease. It became clear to them that 13 out of 20 causes mostly affect men. They include coronary heart disease and obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as diabetes, although in the latter case the difference between the sexes is not very large. Men are also several times more likely to become victims of road accidents, and many men have died during the coronavirus pandemic.

As for women, it turns out that they are more likely to suffer from lower back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders, in addition to headaches and psychological disorders, such as depression and dementia in old age. In addition, women are more susceptible to contracting AIDS.

In general, according to researchers, men are more susceptible to fatal diseases, and women are more susceptible to long-term chronic diseases that affect people for many years. Therefore, they call on health authorities around the world to pay attention to these types of diseases, especially in women, for which according to their information, sufficient funds are not yet allocated.
