Abstract

Men are well known to have a higher risk than women for cardiovascular disease. In recent years, however, studies show adult men also have higher risk for type 2 diabetes, an observation which has important clinical implications, particularly in the public health arena. This chapter explores the relevant data underlying this observation, examines potential mechanisms including life course changes in insulin resistance and role of adiposity, and discusses relevant clinical implications and solutions.
