Early Menopause Affects Women’s Health

Cardiovascular diseases , diabetes , osteoporosis … So many diseases to which premature menopausal women, that is to say before the age of 40, would be particularly exposed, according to new research published in the journal Human Reproduction .

To find out, researchers from the University of Queensland (Australia) followed more than 5,000 women aged 45 to 50, between 1996 and 2016. They had to indicate beforehand if they had faced one of the problems health in the past three years: diabetes , blood pressure, heart disease, stroke , arthritis, osteoporosis , asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, anxiety or breast cancer .

Menopause: a risk of illness multiplied by three

After analyzing 20 years of data, the researchers found that 71% of premature menopausal women had developed chronic and multiple illnesses at age 60, compared to only 55% of women who had been menopausal from the age of 50.

But that’s not all: after removing the factors potentially responsible for these diseases, such as obesity for example, scientists discovered that the health consequences of early menopause were even greater, and tripled the risk of disease.

Findings that outline new leads for the care of patients affected by early menopause : “Health professionals should consider providing comprehensive screening and risk factor assessment when treating these women,” concludes Professor Gita Mishra, lead author of the study.
