Gender Medicine: Women are at higher risk of venous thromboembolism
Researchers from the Complexity Science Hub and the Medical University Viennajointly examined around 45 million patient records and found evidence that women with diabetes mellitus have a higher risk of VTE (venous thromboembolism) than men. „Our analyses show for the first time that diabetes mellitus might be associated with venous thromboembolism to a greater extent in women than in men,” explains CSH researcher Elma Dervic. The effect is greatest in women aged 50-59, who have a 1.65-fold higher risk of VTE.
