A woman’s heart get affected by early menopause

According to a new research if women get menopause before she reaches 50 years of age, then she will be at a higher risk of developing the nonfatal heart conditions. Researchers have analyzed data from 300,000 women who were under 15 studies all around the globe and have found that those women who had menopause before 50 years were at greater risk of developing angina, heart attack or even stroke. Those women who were under 40 and had premature menopause were twice as likely to develop the non fatal cardiovascular diseases even before they reached 60 years of age. The studies are compared with that of the women who were 50 or 51 which is the actual standard period to develop menopause said Gita Mishra who is a school professor of public health at the University of Queensland, Australia.  If women had developed menopause when they are between the ages of 40 to 44, then they were 40% more likely to develop heart conditions. We all know that precaution is always better than cure.

She also added saying that the relationship with nonfatal cardiovascular events was not clear till now. The link between early menopause and developing of cardiovascular diseases in women is higher when they are overweight or obese, smoking ad when they have low education levels. According to Dongshan Zhu, who is a study leader, a doctorate in public health at University, it’s always better to identify who have early menopause so that doctors can monitor and check their risk factors related to cardiovascular diseases. When the disease is early diagnosed it will be easy to treat and prevent it from causing serious health issues and will improve the overall cardiovascular health. So, women should always have a track on their menopause and consult a doctor if they are facing any symptoms of early menopause.
