An omnipresent metric, blood pressure serves as an indicator of our cardiovascular well-being, which affects all aspects of our lives.
However, as we delve into this fascinating world of pulsating forces, an intriguing discovery surfaces: There is a distinct gender disparity when it comes to blood pressure.
"Many women are unaware cardiovascular disease (CVD) kills twice as many women as breast cancer every year," said Deborah Lee, M.B. Ch.B., a sexual and reproductive health specialist at Dr Fox, an online doctor and pharmacy service in the United Kingdom. "Looking after your blood pressure is vital for women for good health and longevity."
Women navigate a distinct physiological landscape, such as hormonal fluctuations, which can impact their cardiovascular health. Understanding these gender-specific dynamics is crucial for women's individual well-being and remains essential for developing targeted interventions and providing personalized healthcare.
