TUESDAY, April 18, 2017 -- A woman's prognosis after an ovarian cancer diagnosis may be affected by a number of unexpected factors, new research suggests.
The study found that diabetes is linked to a 112 percent higher risk of death for women with ovarian cancer. The research also showed that women with a specific type of ovarian cancer actually seemed to benefit from having a high blood pressure (hypertension) diagnosis.
THURSDAY, Feb. 23, 2017 -- A common virus may make some women more susceptible to both heart disease and type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests.
Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco found normal-weight women under age 50 who were infected with cytomegalovirus (CMV) were more likely to have metabolic syndrome than their peers.
TUESDAY, Feb. 21, 2017 -- Heart disease can be a heavy burden for anyone. But new research suggests that black women at risk for the illness are also more prone to loneliness and money worries than their white peers.
That's important, researchers said, because there's evidence that loneliness can raise risks of heart disease and other health problems.
