Women fall behind 1.6 years in life and now we must do something about it! What about the men who still are 6 years behind the women. There are no groups, pink ribbons or walkathons for men diseases.

That being said the number 1 reason I see with women in the clinical setting is their obesity. I would say 80% of my bariatric cllients are women.
