Women aged between 25 and 55 years are the worst affected by migraine. Compared to men, women are three times more likely to be hit by the condition.
However, here is good news for women who are often afflicted by migraine. A study published by ‘JAMA Neurology’ journal says that women suffering from migraine have less chance of getting Type 2 diabetes.
Research conducted earlier had indicated that people having migraine were prone to diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol and even heart attack.
Migraine is caused by expansion and contraction of blood vessels in the brain and skull as well as stimulation of the nerves in the region.
The JAMA Neurology study says women hit by migraine have 30 % less chance of suffering from Type 2 diabetes. The study adds that only a small number of women diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes would have migraine.
Researchers are now planning to conduct a deeper study into the relationship between diabetes and migraine.
