Easily Eliminate Menopause Symptoms – When Rushing Menopause Causes Death
Periods are great, said no woman in history ever!
The truth is quite different. So many women get sick of that time of the month and/or taking the contraceptive pill, leading them to take drastic measures – the surgical removal of their ovaries being the most severe.
But according to new research from the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions, they’re putting themselves at serious risk by doing so, which could potentially result in their untimely death.
Scientists studied 144,000 postmenopausal women with the average age of 60. The women had gone through menopause at different ages, including women who went through early menopause before 40. It also included women who had hastened their menopause by removing their ovaries surgically before age 40.
The results were shocking.
They found that the earlier a woman went through menopause, the more likely they were to develop heart disease, and related conditions such as high blood pressure, high LDL (bad cholesterol), and type 2 diabetes.
Even with the exclusion of other possible heart disease risks, such as unhealthy dieting, obesity, lack of physical exercise, and smoking, women that went through early menopause were still more likely to struggle with high cholesterol, blood clots, irregular heart beat (atrial fibrillation), heart failure, and harmful alterations in the aortic valve.
Those women who artificially hastened their menopause by ovary removal had an even higher risk.
Given these risks, it is all the more important for women who experience an early menopause to adopt a healthy diet and regular exercise program. In addition, the unnecessary hastening of menopause through surgery to get rid of the nuisance of menstruation is not worth it.
Easily Eliminate Menopause Symptoms – The Link Between Menopause, Diabetes and Poor Sleep
The 10 to 15 years of the menopause are a critical time for women’s health because they are more likely to develop diabetes and substantial sleep disturbances in that period than at any other time in their lives.
Both can be ticking health time bombs.
Menopause, the journal of the North American Menopause Society, has just published a study showing that middle-aged women with diabetes are more likely than middle-aged women without it to suffer from poor sleep at night.
This happens because estrogen and progesterone fluctuate wildly during menopause. Both of these hormones are known to affect cell’s responses to insulin, causing fluctuations in blood sugar that put women at greater risk of diabetes.
Good-quality sleep can help to keep diabetes at bay and moderate it if it’s already begun. But the night sweats and hot flashes that come with the menopause are real sleep killers, so they show up at the worst possible time.
Given all these known relationships between menopause, diabetes, and sleep disturbances, the authors of the new study set out to discover whether middle-aged women with diabetes get worse sleep than those without it.
For study subjects, they looked at a sub sample of women who’d participated in two large internet surveys. It had collected their background characteristics, their health conditions, their menopause status, and it had also measured their sleep quality and quantity.
They identified 164 subjects, 62 with diabetes and 102 without any metabolic problems.
On average, the diabetic women reported more sleep-related symptoms than their non-diabetic peers did: 9.95 on the index scale versus 7.25.
The diabetic women also had more severe sleep disturbances: 33.42 against 21.87.
In other words, diabetic middle-aged women have more sleep disturbances and more severe sleep disturbances than women without diabetes.
This was true for women of all four of the races that they tested in the United States, but especially so for Asian American women.
A literature review that appeared in the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2017 suggests that it’s not only middle-aged female diabetics who have these sleep problems.
According to the literature, it’s common for diabetes to cause nerve damage, along with discomfort or pain. Hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic episodes also happen throughout the night, then there’s restless legs syndrome, the need to urinate, and depression too.
No one is going to get a good night’s sleep with all of that going on, and since diabetics are more likely to be overweight, and since obesity itself causes a lot of sleep disorders like sleep apnea, there’s a lot to deal with there.
Easily Eliminate Menopause Symptoms – The Female Condition That Causes Sleep Apnoea
Sleep apnoea is much more common among men than women.
Some women get through menopause without severe symptoms, but many others struggle with extreme hot flashes and night sweats.
According to a new study in Menopause, the journal of the North American Menopause Society, the latter group may be at serious risk of sleep apnoea.
They asked 1,691 women who visited the Women’s Health Clinic at Mayo Clinic in Rochester to complete questionnaires to assess the severity of their sleep apnoea and their menopause symptoms.
Because it is not ideal to test sleep apnoea via a questionnaire, women were asked about their sleep quality, sleep duration, daytime sleepiness, weight, blood pressure, age, and other factors that indicate that they are at risk of sleep apnoea.
The researchers then ranked the women according to the likelihood that they had sleep apnoea.
Those who were the most likely to have sleep apnoea were also the ones suffering from the worst hot flashes.
