Men from Mars vs. Women from Venus: The gender gap in health

Men from Mars vs. Women from Venus: The gender gap in health

Research studies show that women live longer than men. In general, men are more muscular than women. Comparatively, women spend their lives in unhealthier conditions than men. Thus, they carry a heavier disease burden.

Cardiovascular Disease TreatmentGenetics

Both men and women have 23 pairs of chromosomes, which carry the body’s 20,000 to 25,000 genes. All chromosomes in both sexes are the same with the exception of the last chromosome. For the 23rd chromosome, also known as sex chromosome, women have two X chromosomes whereas men have X and Y chromosomes. The Y chromosome is smaller than X and contains fewer genes. Some of these genes may be linked to diseases that contribute to the higher male mortality throughout life. In addition, if a woman has a disease-producing gene on one of her X chromosomes, it may be counter balanced by a normal gene on the other X, but if a man has the same bad gene on his X chromosome, he lacks the potential protection of a matching gene.

Hormones

Male hormones develop unfavourable cholesterol profiles and suffer an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Testosterone contributes to the premature heart disease in men, while estrogen protects women from heart diseases. Testosterone fuels both benign and malignant diseases of the prostate in men. Women, who take estrogen well beyond menopause, experience an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots. Natural estrogen raises good cholesterol (HDL) which is the main factor of protecting women from heart disease.

Cardiovascular Disease TreatmentMidlife challenges

If you are in midlife or later years, you’ve probably already experienced some SIGNS OF AGING: joint pains, dry skin, disturbed sleep, and tiredness most of the day. Midlife is also a time when the risk of degenerative diseases increases. Many women experience low levels of estrogen which contributes to the degeneration of body tissues. The physical transformations your body undergoes as you age have a major influence on your sexuality. Declining hormone levels and changes in neurological and circulatory function may lead to sexual problems such as erectile dysfunction or vaginal pain. Such physical changes often mean that the intensity of youthful sex may give way to more subdued responses during middle and later life.
