Metabolic Syndrome Risk Increases After Menopause

By    |   Monday, 27 July 2020 11:37 AM

A poll of 1,012 Americans found that 47% of women say they've gained weight "due to COVID restrictions." Most said they put on one to nine pounds, but 21% say it's more like 10 to 20.

For middle-age and older women, that compounds health problems that may appear after menopause.

A new study published in the journal Menopause, based on data from more than 10,000 women ages 45 to 85, says that the incidence of metabolic syndrome increases after menopause, affecting around 38% of women ages 60 to 79.

Metabolic syndrome means having three or more of a cluster of five conditions: central obesity (belly fat), high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides, and lower healthy HDL cholesterol level.

This syndrome raises the risk of heart attack and stroke, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers.

The good news is that lifestyle changes can prevent or reverse middle-age weight gain, defeat metabolic syndrome, erase your increased risk of cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes, and help protect you from many cancers. Plus, those changes can undo weight gain and moodiness that result from social isolation restrictions.

Whether indoors or outside, aim to get 300 minutes of physical activity a week. Start with a nightly after-dinner walk; then make it a walk after every meal.

Stay away from highly processed foods, red meat, and added sugars.

With these simple changes, you can make sure that you spend the next decades of your life feeling great.
