Postmenopausal FSH level may negatively affect lipid profile

November 25, 2015

Increased levels of LDL and total cholesterol are often found with high levels of postmenopausal follicle-stimulating hormone, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“The increased serum levels of [follicle-stimulating hormone] may attenuate degradation of LDL [cholesterol] by inhibiting LDL [receptor] expression in the liver tissues, which in turn could elevate the level of serum LDL [cholesterol] and increase the incidence of cardiovascular disease,” the researchers wrote.
