Study sheds light on heart disease delay in women
from Health News
Younger women’s bodies are better able to counter the effects of insulin resistance, which may help explain why they typically develop heart disease 10 years later in life than men, a new study suggests. Insulin is a hormone that takes glucose from the blood and carries it into cells, where it is used for energy. Insulin resistance — the term used when the body doesn’t use insulin properly — increases the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
