About the series
The Editors of Biology of Sex Differences have commissioned a thematic series on Sex Differences in Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome and the Microbiome. New data show that there are sex differences in the mechanisms responsible for insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and obesity. Furthermore, sex differences are also present in the gut microbiome which is important in maintaining levels of estrogens and androgens. The cardiometabolic consequences of sex differences in these tissues impact the development and prognosis for cardiovascular disease in men and women.
