Are Doctors Using Gender Specific Information To Improve Health Care?
In this show, Dr. Marianne Legato, Founder and Director of the Foundation for Gender Specific Medicine and author of many books and articles including Eve’s Rib: The Groundbreaking Guide To Women’s Health and Why Men Die First: How to Lengthen Your Lifespan clarifies the need for Gender Specific Medicine. In the back and forth with host Dr. Suzanne Phillips, she underscores that whereas we certainly recognize the differences between men and women, we have for too long overlooked the importance of those differences in medical research and practice.

With important and even alarming examples, Dr. Legato invites physicians and consumers like us to use the knowledge of these differences. Are you aware of the cardiac risk for men in the forties? Will it surprise you to learn that the symptoms of heart attack for women are so different from those of men that they are often mistaken for gastrointestinal problems? Are men and women more susceptible to certain cancers? How is the progression of diabetes different for men and women? Essentially, this is a show that informs you as a consumer for your own health. It is one that should not be missed.
