Menopause Info part 4:

A 10-part series exploring the causes, symptoms, and treatments for Menopause.  Keep an eye out for the next information post…

Exploring Symptoms: Brain Fog:

 

  • Memory and Cognitive function can be affected which has a knock-on effect to confidence levels.
  • Concentration – hot flushes affect concentration levels.
  • Alzheimer’s/dementia: women>men – studies looking at beta amyloid levels, glucose metabolism and grey and white matter volume in the brain.
  • Established Alzheimer’s may be worsened by taking HRT.
  • Preventative effect if HRT taken before Alzheimer’s is established/diagnosed.
  • Women more likely to develop depression after menopause.

Exploring Symptoms: Skin and hair changes:

Reduction of collagen (a protein found in skin, muscles, tendons, and bone that provides structure and strength).  Face creams that claim to improve collagen – are generally ineffective!

Subcutaneous fat reduces under surface of skin.

Reduced melanocytes – skin/sun damage

Increased hair fallout

Iron supplements can help.
