Diabetes Hurts Women's Hearts More Than Men's?

A new study found that diabetic women have a 40-50 percent higher chance of developing heart disease and are 50 percent more likely to die from it than men. Why? Because men develop diabetes at a younger age than women, when they weigh less, while women develop it older, when they weigh much more, writes Health Day.
