Association between common mental disorders, sleep quality, and menopausal symptoms: a population-based study in Southern Brazil

Objective: To investigate the association between common mental disorders (CMD), sleep quality, and moderate and severe menopausal symptoms in adult women in southern Brazil. Methods: This cross-sectional, population-based study investigated a representative sample of 393 women (age 40-69 years) living in an urban area. A standardized and pretested questionnaire that included the Self-Reporting Questionnaire-20 for CMD (Self-Reporting Questionnaire-20 ≥7), the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index-BR for sleep disorders (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index>5), and the Menopause Rating Scale for moderate/severe menopausal symptoms (Menopause Rating Scale>8) was used for data collection. Unadjusted and adjusted prevalence ratios and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were estimated using robust Poisson regression. Results: The prevalence of moderate/severe menopausal symptoms in the sample was 58.0% (95% CI 53.0-63.0), the prevalence of CMD was 40.2% (95% CI 35.3-45.2), and the prevalence of poor sleep quality was 49.4% (95% CI 44.3-54.5). CMD and poor sleep quality occurred simultaneously in 34.4% of participants (95% CI 29.6-39.3). Moderate/severe menopausal complaints were significantly more prevalent in women with CMD (P

Women dealing with hot flushes: the role of β-alanine. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2020 May;24(9):5148-5154 Authors: Andreeva E, Tkeshelashvili B Abstract Hot flushes (HFs) are a very frequent condition in menopausal women, associated with a marked decrease in quality of life, impaired ability to carry on daily activities and sleep disturbances. However, this condition is often only given poor attention in daily practice and in clinical research. Indeed, several treatments for HFs exist. The most effective is considered to be hormone replacement therapy, but this strategy has been associated with a...

Abstract Chronic insomnia is the most common sleep disorder in the elderly population. From 9 to 50% of patients suffer of paradoxical insomnia, with the same symptoms and ailments, though characterized by normal sleep patterns. We have investigated the level of parameters related to stress in a group of post-menopausal female patients (age range 55-70 years) suffering by either objective or paradoxical insomnia, in particular we have measured 24-hours urinary cortisol, allostatic load index, Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) score, and, for the first time, mitokines (mitochondrial stress response molecules) such as FG...

Discussion Fragile X syndrome (FXS) was first clinically described in 1943 by Martin-Bell and in 1969 Lubs found a fragility at the terminal end of the X chromosome. In 1991, three different research groups independently cloned the mutation for the FMR1 gene (Fragile X mental retardation type 1) which has a CGG triplet expansion. The FMR1 gene codes for the FMR protein which is a major regulator of synaptic plasticity and is expressed in the brain and spermatogonia mainly but many other tissues during fetal and early neonatal development. The number of triplets and methylation correlates with clinical expression (increased...

Menopause is generally experienced as a biopsychosocial process involving physiological changes, and influenced by a wide range of psychological, social and cultural factors. The loss of ovarian oestrogen production may cause debilitating symptoms, including hot flushes, night sweats, sleep disturbance, vaginal dryness, dyspareunia, bladder dysfunction, loss of libido, and mood changes. Experience of the menopause transition varies widely between individuals, depending on the age of onset, personal health and wellbeing, social context, environment and culture.
