In January 2013American Food and Drug AdministrationRegarding the use of sleep inducing agents, women asked to reduce their consumption as drowsiness persisted longer after taking more than men. There are hormone cycles in women, small organs, and because the fat that makes up the body is larger than men, it is thought that sleep inducing drugs may affect too much. Also, it is known that men metabolize caffeine earlier than females, while women know that they metabolize antibiotics quickly, which is also attributed to gender differences of such metabolism.

Connective tissue inflammation has about 6 million patients in the United States, and the number of female patients is nine times the number of male patients. This also seems to be one of the reasons why diseases such as connective tissue inflammation and chronic fatigue syndrome where a clear cause is unknown are not received as reliable pain of female patient's complaint It is. In other words, it is often that vague diagnosis is given to female pain, so that the cause of the disease itself becomes unclear. Of course, medical research itself on pain itself is advancing at a slow pace, but Edwards said, the study of pain relating to gender is going to slowly develop over the circle.
