Men are at greater risk of mortality from stroke. Although, the presence of hypertension, obesity and metabolic syndrome, and diabetes are some of the risk factors for stroke, why women should be protected is not clear. The roles of estrogens in women and androgens in men as potentially contributing to stroke prevalence and mortality have not been well studied.
