Nightshift work lowers age at menopause

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 6 marzo 2019

The Nurses’ Health Study project has over past decades generated an enormous number of publications on an array of medical issues. This project has contributed importantly to our understanding of and discussion about female health, mostly in the context of reproductive science. Stock et al now extracted from this invaluable and ever-growing dataset that women exposed to occupational rotation/nightshift are at a slightly increased risk of accelerated menopausal onset. Menopause in the human is traditionally attributed to ovarian depletion of viable follicles. The study controlled for a number of potential confounders such as age, smoking and parity – each of which may influence or be related to ovarian reserve. To what extent bio-rhythmic disturbance may act in a similar way is an intriguing issue yet to be solved. Perhaps in the human, timing of final ovarian activity may depend to some extent on altered neuroendocrine activity as is the case in most other species.

Women About Symptoms, Hormones and Latest Treatments for Menopause

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 9 novembre 2018

As approximately one third of a woman’s life is spent post-menopause, doctors from Yale University hosted Yale’s “One-Day Medical School: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Menopause but Were Too Afraid to Ask” event on October 25, 2018 to provide essential health education for women 45+.“Public health and medicine improvements over the past 150 years have increased the life expectancy of women into their late 80s. While the age of menopause onset has not changed, the transition to menopause has larger implications as it relates to sexuality and overall heath, both physiological and psychological,” says Mary Jane Minkin, MD, Clinical Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Yale University. “It’s important for women to recognize the early signs of menopause and learn how to cope with hot flashes, changes in sleep quality, joint and muscle health, sexual functioning, and hindrances to comfort in everyday life.” Live stream available at: https://www.faboverfifty.com/events/day-medical-school/

European Society Human Reproduction and Embryology

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 28 giugno 2010

Rome 28/6/2010 26th annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology. Dr Fahimeh Ramezani Tehrani will tell the in that her findings have implications for women and their doctors; if the results of the research are supported by larger studies, it means that women will be able to discover early on in their reproductive life what their expected age at menopause will be, so that they can plan when to start a family. By taking blood samples from 266 women, aged 20-49, who had been enrolled in the much larger Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study, Dr Ramezani Tehrani and her colleagues were able to measure the concentrations of a hormone that is produced by cells in women’s ovaries – anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH). AMH controls the development of follicles in the ovaries, from which oocytes (eggs) develop and it has been suggested that AMH could be used for measuring ovarian function. The researchers took two further blood samples at three yearly intervals, and they also collected information on the women’s socioeconomic background and reproductive history. In addition, the women had physical examinations every three years. The Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study is a prospective study that started in 1998 and is still continuing.
Dr Ramezani Tehrani, who is President of the Reproductive Endocrinology Department of the Endocrine Research Centre and a faculty member and Associate Professor of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran, Iran, said: “We developed a statistical model for estimating the age at menopause from a single measurement of AMH concentration in serum from blood samples.  Dr Ramezani Tehrani was able to use the statistical model to identify AMH levels at different ages that would predict if women were likely to have an early menopause (before the age of 45). She found that, for instance, AMH levels of 4.1 ng/ml or less predicted early menopause in 20-year-olds, AMH levels of 3.3 ng/ml predicted it in 25-year-olds, and AMH levels of 2.4 ng/ml predicted it in 30-year-olds.
