Menopausal Symptoms: Possible Link to Diabetes – APhA submits compounding comments to FDA. – (866) 348-2889.
Vasomotor symptoms—hot flashes, night sweats, and various other symptoms—are quite common. Nearly 80% of postmenopausal women report that they’ve experienced these annoying, uncomfortable, and often incredibly disruptive changes. Some researchers propose that vasomotor symptoms may signal physiologic processes that might be associated with other related systemic health diagnoses.
A team of researchers from across the nation has looked at vasomotor symptoms and the possibility that in women, they may hint at diabetes and the future. These researchers report that previous studies have looked for relationships between vasomotor symptoms and insulin resistance, but reported mixed results. In a recent study, published in Menopause: The Journal of the North American Menopause Society, the researchers looked for additional information about vasomotor symptoms and incident diabetes.
