According to an article published on health line “A new study published in Nature Communications says women get diagnosed with diseases far later than men.

How much later?

For cancer, the researchers said women get diagnosed two and a half years later than men.

For diabetes, women are diagnosed four and a half years later than men.

The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen. They looked at the health data for almost 7 million men and women in the Danish healthcare system over a 21-year period.

They discovered that women were diagnosed later than men in more than 700 diseases.”
