An analysis of prescriptions shows that although women are more likely to have high blood pressure and cholesterol than men - putting them at greater risk of heart problems - they were less likely to receive protective medication.
Researchers from the University of Manchester believe that healthcare workers fail to realise that risk of cardiovascular disease for diabetic women is not that much lower than that of men.
