Early Menopause Increases the Risk of Premature Death
The research team from the Netherlands, led by Taulant Muka found that women with early menopause often have developed heart problems and increased the risk of premature death.
The average age for menopause is 51 years old. Early menopause is the one that came before 45 years - it happens in one out of ten women. It can be caused by antineoplastic therapy or associated with surgery of removing the ovaries.
The authors believe that the menopause, which came before 45 years may be one of the signs pointing to an increased chance of developing cardiovascular disease. Also they have increased the risk of diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.This means that physicians should treat these women more carefully, by directing them to the necessary inspections in time.Related: Menopause FSH test
Scientists from the Erasmus University Medical Center came to these conclusions after studied the results of 32 studies involving more than 300,000 women. They compared the health of those who have menopause before 45 years with the health of women who have menopause at a later age.
Early menopause doubles the risk of developing coronary heart disease and by 13% increase possibility of death from cardiovascular disease. The overall risk of premature death in this group was also increased.
The authors suggested that menopause leads to hormonal changes, which is the cause of inflammation and vascular injury. However, this hypothesis remains to be confirmed.
