Hormone therapy as a possible solution for post #menopausal women with #nocturia results of a pilot trial

To observe the impact of different hormonal treatment options on nocturia, its causative factors and bother in postmenopausal women. Methods: This prospective study recruited 245 postmenopausal women and divided them into four treatment groups based on patient’s choice: Estrogen + Progesterone (E+P), Estrogen-only in patients with a prior hysterectomy, tissue-selective estrogen complex (TSEC) and no treatment. Nocturia and its causative factors were observed using two … Continue reading Hormone therapy as a possible solution for post #menopausal women with #nocturia results of a pilot trial

#Menopause Transition and #Cardiovascular Disease Risk: Implications for Timing of Early Prevention: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in women, who have a notable increase in the risk for this disease after menopause and typically develop coronary heart disease several years later than men. This observation led to the hypothesis that the menopause transition (MT) contributes to the increase in coronary heart disease risk. Over the past 20 years, longitudinal studies of women traversing … Continue reading #Menopause Transition and #Cardiovascular Disease Risk: Implications for Timing of Early Prevention: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

#Walking Volume and Speed Are Inversely Associated With Incidence of Treated #Hypertension in #Postmenopausal Women

Few studies have evaluated hypertension incidence in relation to walking, which is a common physical activity among adults. We examined the association between walking and hypertension incidence in 83 435 postmenopausal women who at baseline were aged 50 to 79 years, without known hypertension, heart failure, coronary heart disease, or stroke, and reported the ability to walk at least one block without assistance. Walking volume (metabolic … Continue reading #Walking Volume and Speed Are Inversely Associated With Incidence of Treated #Hypertension in #Postmenopausal Women

#Obesity Has a Stronger Relationship with Colorectal #Cancer in Postmenopausal Women Than Premenopausal Women

Background: To examine the relationship between obesity measured by waist circumference (WC) and body mass index (BMI) and the incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in premenopausal and postmenopausal women. Methods: A total of 1,418,180 premenopausal and 4,854,187 postmenopausal women without cancer at baseline and aged over 40 were identified using the Korean National Health Insurance System Cohort during 2009-2014. The hazard ratio (HR) for CRC … Continue reading #Obesity Has a Stronger Relationship with Colorectal #Cancer in Postmenopausal Women Than Premenopausal Women

Association of #Menopausal Hormone Therapy With Breast #Cancer Incidence and Mortality During Long-term Follow-up of the Women’s Health Initiative Randomized Clinical Trials

In the trial involving 16 608 women with a uterus, 8506 were randomized to receive 0.625 mg/d of conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) plus 2.5 mg/d of medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) and 8102, placebo. In the trial involving 10 739 women with prior hysterectomy, 5310 were randomized to receive 0.625 mg/d of CEE alone and 5429, placebo. The CEE-plus-MPA trial was stopped in 2002 after 5.6 years’ median intervention … Continue reading Association of #Menopausal Hormone Therapy With Breast #Cancer Incidence and Mortality During Long-term Follow-up of the Women’s Health Initiative Randomized Clinical Trials

Mitochondrial and redox dysfunction in post-#menopause as risk factor of neurodegenerative disease: a pilot study testing the role of a validated Japanese functional food.

During the menopause women may experience increased oxidative stress and decreased antioxidant capacity and, together with the decline of neurosteroids, this represents a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. The aim of the present study was to test a functional food (FPP-ORI, Osato Research Institute, Gifu, Japan) on redox and mitochondrial efficiency in post-menopausal women. The study population consisting of 69 untreated post-menopausal women were given … Continue reading Mitochondrial and redox dysfunction in post-#menopause as risk factor of neurodegenerative disease: a pilot study testing the role of a validated Japanese functional food.

Early onset of #menopause is associated with increased peripheral #atherosclerotic plaque volume and progression

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in western countries. One risk factor unique to women is the menopausal status. The aim of this study was to analyse the influence of the onset of menopause (MP) on the extent and progression of atherosclerotic plaque volume (PV). ..110 consecutive postmenopausal women (mean age 65.5) were included. Females with an earlier onset of MP (<45 … Continue reading Early onset of #menopause is associated with increased peripheral #atherosclerotic plaque volume and progression

Effect of hormone replacement therapy on #atherogenic lipid profile in postmenopausal women

..Recent studies suggest that hormone replacement therapy (#HRT) is cardioprotective when initiated early after menopause, but the mechanisms involved are still unclear. One-hundred and forty postmenopausal women <70 years were included in EVTET and randomized either to active treatment (one tablet of 2 mg estradiol and 1 mg norethisterone acetate daily) (n = 71) or placebo (n = 69). Our study show that HRT compared to placebo significantly reduced plasma levels of … Continue reading Effect of hormone replacement therapy on #atherogenic lipid profile in postmenopausal women
