Gender Medicine: The Groundbreaking New Science of Gender and Sex-Related Diagnosis and Treatment

Gender Medicine: The Groundbreaking New Science of Gender and Sex-Related Diagnosis and Treatment

by Marek Glezerman

Studies have shown that women are more sensitive to antihistamines, that Aspirin is more effective in preventing strokes in women but more effective in preventing heart attacks in men, that Alzheimer's disease is expressed differently for men and women.

Medical research is often done primarily on men, with results applied to women patients; these differences are largely overlooked by the medical establishment. But male and female bodies have evolved crucial physiological differences, and author Marek Glezerman M.D. is finally taking those into account. Calling for a paradigm shift in the medical field, Gender Medicine explores these key differences, looking at how they are commonly treated and offering better solutions that take these differences into account. This book is an eye-opening read for both those in the medical field, and their patients.
