A new study from China suggests that estrogen and vitamin D may help postmenopausal women to prevent metabolic syndrome.postmenopausal women

Within the frame of the study, the researchers included 616 postmenopausal women aged 49–86 years. None of them was taking estrogen or vitamin D supplements at the baseline.

The scientists measured the levels of estradiol and vitamin D in the blood and assessed risk factors for developing metabolic syndrome.

The analysis of the available data showed that women with insufficient levels of vitamin D and estradiol were more likely to have metabolic syndrome than women with sufficient levels.

Dr. JoAnn Pinkerton, executive director of The North American Menopause Society, says that this research demonstrates that low estrogen appears to raise the risk of metabolic syndrome in postmenopausal women with insufficient levels of vitamin D.
