Mount Sinai’s Anna Pace, MD, Discusses New Study on Migraine and Links to Discrimination in Sexual and Gender Minorities

Migraine is second only to stroke as the leading contributor to disability-adjusted life-years globally. Studies suggest greater odds of migraine in presumably cisgender lesbian women, cisgender gay men, and bisexual people of any gender. However, little is known about migraine prevalence and severity in transgender and gender non-binary individuals. Dr. Anna Pace, along with Dr. Grethen Tietjen, Distinguished University Professor Emerita of Neurology at the University of Toledo, Ohio, discussed the purpose of this study and the outcomes of the research.
