Are women who have menopause will be faster and the disease quickly tired?
At the time of menopause, women experience a condition in which the sex hormones (especially estrogen and progesterone) were previously produced to be discontinued. The consequences of no longer produced these hormones is the occurrence of diseases that are chronic inflammatory diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzhaimer, and autoimmune diseases.
Before menopause, estrogen levels balanced and inflammatory / inflammation that occurs generally mediocre and body basically works effectively to prevent the entry of harmful germs. This will gradually change with the cessation of estrogen production during menopause.
Research shows, in women with low estrogen levels in postmenopausal women as higher risk for the occurrence of chronic inflammatory processes. Some theories say the relationship is with low estrogen production, causing weight gain, which means increasing the number of fat cells. Fat cells produce “protein cytokines” that are pro-inflammatory. With the increasing number of fat cells is also increased cytokine protein and more easily exposed to the risk of infection is chronic.
Signs and symptoms that accompany menopause:
Burning sensation in the face (suddenly hot and sweating).
Headaches, forgetfulness, irritability.
Feeling anxious restlessness.
Sleep disturbances, irritability, rapid fatigue.
Bones ache, joint pain, spinal pain.
Tingling hands and feet.
Skin begins to wrinkle, hair began to fall out.
Reduced vaginal lubrication during intercourse so sick.
Impaired sexual libido, impaired concentration.
Lack of confidence.
Increased cholesterol levels in the blood.
Thus, when compared with premenopausal women, menopausal women will indeed be more susceptible to diseases such as heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, Alzhaimer, and autoimmune diseases.
Is it going to get tired? Because in postmenopausal women are usually experiencing insomnia (difficulty sleeping), sweat, and heat at night, it will interfere with rest / sleep at night. As a result, during the day there will be fatigue. Other causes can also be caused by hormonal reactions that cause changes in the body’s metabolism.
Prevention can be done is:
Eating nutritious foods that are naturally anti-inflammatory, such as whole grains, fruits, fish, dark green leafy vegetables, beans, and cook with olive oil. Avoid consumption of foods containing trans fat, such as margarine.
Regular exercise, because regular exercise will reduce the amount of fat deposits.
Smoking, drinking alcohol, and drugs should be avoided because it is pro-inflammatory and damaging healthy tissue.
Avoid stress, because stress can damage the immune system.
Enough sleep will be very useful for preventing chronic inflammatory process.
Although it appears there was a relationship between menopause with inflammatory processes, but it is certainly still to be studied further to better prove the relationship.
