8:22 am
you're just another anxious, young, type a female type student. take a deep breath. maybe you need antidepressants, maybe you need anxiety medicine. >> more and more research shows a shocking bias against women in medical care that can jeopardize their health. now there's a timely push for change. >> this is the #metoo of health care. >> dr. noel runs one of the country's largest cardiac care centers for women. in a recent report she found the heart disease is the number one killer of women. only 40% of their routine care includes a heart risk check. women are nearly twice as likely as men to die in the year following a heart attack. she says too often doctors treat women at risk for heart disease very differently than men. >> young women were more likely told to lose weight. where the young men, who were actually more overweight, were
8:23 am
more likely put on effective preventive therapy. >> is that because the doctor doesn't think of a woman as getting heart disease? >> people are always sort of judging women according to their weight. the irony, of course, is that weight loss doesn't reduce cardiovascular disease. >> and there's more. the women are twice as likely to suffer from chronic pain as men. studies show women's reports of pain are more likely to be dismissed. it wasn't until laurie was in her 20s and in the hospital with lung problems that her disease was correctly diagnosed. >> i'm in a great place, but how much better would my long-term prognosis be if i had been doing all these things all the time. >> gender biases exist in medical research, too. while clinical trials funded by nih are now required to include female subjects, those funded by private medical companies are exempt. in lab studies, mostly male animals have been used meaning many drugs are never evaluated
8:24 am
for females at all before coming to market. perhaps it's not surprising that women are up to 75% more likely to have an adverse drug reaction than men. >> they are actually really important differences between men and women. that goes all the way down to the level of our cells. every single cell in our body has a sex, xx, xy, female or male. that actually translates to different chemical reactions. that can have important dramatic effects on how we respond to treatment. >> what can women do? first experts say when prescribed medication, ask your doctors if the drug was ever studied in women. does it have potential side effects for women. if they don't know, go somewhere else. second, if you're told to get a medical test, ask how accurate it is for women. many common diagnostic tools were designed only around men. third, when it comes to assessing your body and health,
8:25 am
listen to your gut. >> my message to women is to be willing to look for a second or third opinion and to be willing to walk away from the partnership that isn't working. >> so enlightening. you're hoping that progress is being made in this field. there is some? >> there is some progress. this is really important that nih is doing educational outreach to physicians and pharmacists and medical journals are now requiring researchers to include females in their studies. while many people do think that having a female doctor makes them more sensitive and many do say that the issue also is that many of these female doctors also have their own biases. so it's really up to the patient to be educated, to be informed and to ask these questions. many women think that a physical is a mammogram and a pap smear and it's not. >> wow. >> i think that's such a biggie. >> you're not crazy. >> maria, thank you. >> well, i might be.
