dulxy071  A stronger factor though is diet and other habits. no matter who it is, if you eat more high sodium food you're going to need a treatment which targets ridding the body of sodium more than anything else and so on so forth. This is something that the world medicine needs to understand better +4  
neovanilla  Maybe, but this is NBME, and while diet can play a role in different pharmacological responses, what they might be emphasizing here is that no one drug affects all people the same way. There's an incredible bias in medicine towards white males because older drug clinical studies only recruited these patients. It was only once the drug was in the market that doctors and patients realized that certain drugs didn't work as well for them. That's just a fact, and is what NBME is testing us on +9
