Age-related changes in #bone density, microarchitecture and strength in postmenopausal Black and White women: SWAN Longitudinal HR-pQCT Study

Higher fracture risk in White versus Black women is partly explained by lower BMD and worse bone microarchitecture in White women. However, whether rates of decline in bone density, microarchitecture and strength differ between postmenopausal Black and White women is unknown. Further, factors that influence rates of age-related bone microarchitecture deterioration remain ill-defined. Thus, over …

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 …

#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. …

#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 …

#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 …
