Menopause News Flash: research, news and information
A UA research team has identified a region in the brain that may trigger the uncomfortable surges of heat most women experience in the first few years of menopause.
A bigger part of the female population struggles with weight gain after menopause. Scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in North Carolina found that gaining weight back after a diet could put women at greater risk of diabetes and heart disease.
The study, published in the October 24 online issue of Neurology, found that women who began hormone therapy within five years of menopause had a 30 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia than those who did not use the medication.

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound
solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
