Researchers reported at the Heart in Diabetes conference that women with type 2 diabetes in the US had worse health outcomes, such as being less likely to receive cardiovascular drugs, having multiple hospitalizations and worse quality of life than men, while patients who received a diabetes diagnosis before age 40 had an up to 50% increased risk for combined renal and CV endpoints and renal death than those diagnosed later. Findings also revealed that blacks and Hispanic Americans had the lowest CVD health scores among women.
