Excerpt

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered after exposure to trauma or a life-threatening event. PTSD is associated with several negative health outcomes, beyond its behavioral symptoms, including poor physical health, reduced quality of life, and early mortality. Studies have demonstrated systemic inflammation, altered autonomic function, decreased resting parasympathetic activity, and heightened sympathetic reactivity during mental stress [ 1] as potential mechanisms underlying the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in PTSD. However, even with women being more than twice as likely as men to have lifetime PTSD [ 2], the majority of these mechanistic studies were conducted in men. Despite premenopausal women having lower cardiovascular risk, due to estrogen protective effects, women with PTSD have an increased risk of developing hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary artery disease, and increased mortality [ 3, 4]. …
