Diabetes ups CAD risk in women fourfold
The meta-analysis of three studies included more than 10,000 patients. It showed men with diabetes had an almost threefold higher risk of CAD than women without diabetes, but when comparing men and women with diabetes, the risk of CAD was the same.
Women with diabetes had an almost fourfold higher risk of CAD than women without diabetes, while there was no difference in CAD risk in men with and without diabetes.
