Obesity increases vasomotor symptom severity

June 5, 2017

Women with obesity may experience more severe vasomotor symptoms at menopause than women with overweight or normal weight, according to findings published in Menopause.

Lucia Costa-Paiva, MD, PhD, of the department of obstetrics and gynecology, faculty of medical science at the State University of Campinas in São Paulo, and colleagues conducted a cross-sectional population-based study with 749 women aged 45 to 60 years (mean age, 52.5 years; mean age at menopause, 46.4 years) to determine whether an association exists between vasomotor symptoms and obesity. The menopause rating scale questionnaire was completed by all participants to describe menopausal symptoms and appointed scores for symptom severity. The scale reports on three symptom domains, including somatic, psychological and urogenital.
