Weight Loss And Menopause

Research has suggested that weight loss could help in banishing the symptoms of menopause. Women who are at menopause stage, losing weight by eating low-fat food rich in vegetables and fruits could eliminate or reduce their night sweats and hot flashes. The researches encourage doctors to suggest menopausal patients about weight loss before recommending the hormone replacement treatment.

Most of the women are unwilling to undergo hormonal therapy treatment as they afraid that the treatment can increase the risk of heart disease and breast cancer.

From recent studies it has been proved that losing weight can reduce certain hormones levels, which trigger symptoms. Women who are obese tend to produce higher levels of estrogen hormone that may aggravate night sweats and hot flashes. And having excess fat also prevents the body from cooling down followed by the flash.

Women who will lose weight with this healthier diet- increasing fruits, vegetables, whole grains and decreasing fat were specifically more likely to eliminate or reduce symptoms.

As most of the women can gain with as their age increase, weight gain prevention or weight loss may provide a visible strategy in order to help in eliminating night sweats and hot flashes that are associated with the menopause stage. Greater body weight provides insulation, which may hinder hot flashes, night sweats and heat loss offer a way to reduce the heat.

Women with the menopausal problems who were on the low fat foods rich in fruits, vegetable and whole grains, who were not undergoing hormone replacement treatment and who lost minimum 10 pounds of body weight in a year are more likely to observe hot flashes and night sweats disappear or reduced after a year than women who were maintained their healthy weight. Especially weight loss is loss of the excess fat but not the lean mass, which help in alleviating the night sweats and hot flashes.

When you have tried all those methods and didn’t notice any change in your weight, it is better to consider weight loss surgery. But before going to make any decision be sure to consult an experienced weight loss surgeon
