Here in Alaska we watch grizzly bears chow down on blueberries like nobody’s business each fall. I used to wonder how berries could help bears put on fat, as I had thought you needed fat to put on fat! Then the pieces came together! I often forget why I walked into a room, and I experience a triggered memory begin to follow a synaptic path at times to have it disappear into a nebulous nothing. I am not considered overweight, but could feel visceral fat inside after menopause. Now, I am very happy to include plenty of fat in my diet and in even just 5 days, the extra body fat is melting off and I am understanding my symptoms must have been due to a long-term, undiagnosed gluten and dairy sensitivity. -Shabd S.

In the middle of the night, I wake up feeling warm. I open the window and pull my hair back into a ponytail and drink some water. Then I glance at my phone, delete a few things, and see some spam. I hit unsubscribe and go back to bed. Then I lie there thinking, What if by opening that spam email I got myself hacked? What if I just sent everyone in my contact list a Burger King ad at two in the morning? Now wide awake, I move on to other concerns: my parents’ health, my stepson’s college tuition, pending deadlines. Hours roll by. I tackle real-life math problems: how many weeks I have before getting my next free...

Conclusions: In premenopausal women, BMI, WC, and WHR hold similar potential in predicting the risk of NAFLD, whereas, in postmenopausal women, WHR is the most useful discriminative indicator for NAFLD. Women's optimal cutoff values for NAFLD were different according to menopausal status.

Authors: Tobari M, Hashimoto E Abstract This review provides an update on the characteristics of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), with a focus on the effects of age, sex, and body mass index. Age is a risk factor for NAFLD progression; however, extremely old patients have unique features, namely, the associations between metabolic comorbidities and NAFLD are weaker and NAFLD is not a risk factor for mortality. The prevalence of NAFLD is higher in men than in premenopausal women, whereas the reverse is true after menopause. Thus, before menopause, estrogen may have protective effects against NAFLD. Our hosp...

CONCLUSION: Obesity was not found to correlate strongly with the progression or remission of CIN. Obese postmenopausal women may still be affected by a persistence of the disease. Continuing cervical cytology monitoring should be recommended for such patients. Silent high grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN2/3) in ASC-US cytology in this study were high. Colposcopy should be recommended for diagnosis and follow-up in this setting. PMID: 31870122 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Hestiantoro A, Astuti BPK, Muharam R, Pratama G, Witjaksono F, Wiweko B Abstract During the menopausal period, women have a higher tendency to develop obesity and any other metabolic syndromes. Dysregulation of leptin and kisspeptin signaling as anorexigenic agents is believed to be the connection between metabolic disorders and altered reproductive function. Therefore, this study aimed at investigating the association between leptin, soluble leptin receptor (sOBR), free leptin index, kisspeptin concentrations, and body mass index (BMI) in postmenopausal women. A cross-sectional study was carried out among...

Excess body weight is an established risk factor for breast cancer. Research suggests that’s because too much body fat can elevate levels of sex hormones like estrogen, especially among postmenopausal women. But despite knowing there is a correlation between extra weight and breast cancer, it’s been difficult to study how losing that weight could affect an individual woman’s chance of developing cancer. Now, a new paper published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute provides encouraging evidence that, for women 50 and older, virtually any amount of sustained weight loss translates to a reductio...
