Early Menopause, Smoking Pose Heart Failure Risk

Report on new research by;
Dr. Robin Wulffson, M.D.
LA Women’s Health Examiner.

“According to a new study, women who some and enter an early menopause are at increased risk for heart failure. The findings were published in the January 2015 edition of the journal Menopause by Swedish researchers.”

“The researchers concluded that women who undergo an early natural menopause are at increased risk for developing heart failure; furthermore, smoking can impact the association by increasing the risk even among women who enter menopause around age 46 to 49 years.

Take home message:

Risks of health problems are affected by both genetic and environmental factors. These factors also play a role in age at menopause. This study found that the highest risk of heart failure occurred among women who smoked and entered menopause early. Smoking impacts health in a number of ways; thus, it is possible that an early menopause is due, at least in part, to smoking.”

Exercise your Menopausal Problems Away

Reported from

Physical exercise has many benefits. A new study evaluated the benefits of physical exercise on menopausal symptoms, blood lipids, and weight. The findings were published in the December edition of the journal Menopause.

The authors concluded that physical exercise can significantly reduce menopausal symptoms, improve blood lipid levels, and reduce weight.


For the full University of Nottingham report, read here

“Researchers conducted a large population-based cohort study, analysing more than two million women of childbearing age in the United Kingdom, to compare the rates of new clinically recorded fertility problems in groups of women with and without coeliac disease. The findings show women with coeliac disease do not have a greater likelihood of reporting fertility problems, either before or after diagnosis of coeliac disease. However, rates of clinically recorded fertility problems were 41 per cent higher among women diagnosed with coeliac disease when they were 25-29 years old, compared to women in the same age group without the disease.

Dr Dhalwani said: “It is important to recognise that this represented only a very small increase in the number of women consulting with fertility problems — if we followed women between ages 25-29 years over a one year period, presentations with fertility problems would occur in one of every 100 women without coeliac disease, but in 1.5 of every 100 women with coeliac disease. The fact that this increase was not seen in women of the same age with undiagnosed coeliac disease indicates that it is unlikely to represent a biological impact of the condition on fertility. It may instead be related to heightened concern that may prompt earlier consultation if women experience delays in conception. This does, however, warrant further assessment.””
