Gender differences in symptoms and responses to medical treatment

The 1-stop-health-shop is examining gender differences in symptoms and responses to medical treatment.

Gender-based medicine or simply gender medicine is the field of medicine that studies the biological and physiological differences between the human sexes and how that affects differences in disease.

Traditionally, medical research has mostly been conducted using the male body as the basis for clinical studies.  

The findings of these studies have often been applied across the sexes and healthcare providers have assumed a uniform approach in treating both male and female patients.
