Effect of gonadotrophin releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) - induced pseudomenopause on serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 level and health related quality of life (HRQOL) in endometriosis

There are evidences that 25 hydroxy vitamin D3 (D3) sufficiency is required for optimal health1 . Our objective was to study the effects of two doses of Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormone Analogue (GnRHa) (Inj.Triptorelin)- induced pseudomenopause in endometriosis on D3 level and Health related quality of life (HRQOL) (using Menopause Rating Scale).

Women with endometriosis have a higher preponderance of demographic and lifestyle risk factors associated with low postmenopausal bone mineral density (BMD). However, it is unclear whether endometriosis confers an additional risk of low BMD or fracture after menopause. Further, data on risk factors for low premenopausal BMD are limited. We aimed to compare premenopausal BMD and the risk of major osteoporotic fracture (in women ≥40 years old) between women with and without endometriosis, accounting for known postmenopausal risk factors.

ConclusionModerate-to-severe endometriosis was more common in women with East or South East Asian ethnicity in our tertiary referral center. This could be explained by East/South East Asians with minimal-mild disease being less likely to seek care, or genetic/environmental differences that increase the risk of more severe disease amongst East/South East Asians.
