REDUCING HOT FLASHES

from North American Menopause Society

An estimated eighty percent of women will experience hot flashes during or around the time of menopause. They not only interfere with a woman’s quality of life, but are also associated with health problems, including greater risk for heart disease. A new study presented to the annual meeting of the North American Menopause Society focused on a possible link between sedentary lifestyles and prediction of increased nighttime hot flashes. Preliminary results of the study indicate sedentary behavior, which is common during the menopause transition, does, in fact, predict nighttime hot flashes. Co-author of the study, Dr. Sarah Witkowski from Smith College says knowledge regarding the influence of sedentary behavior on hot flashes can help improve lifestyle recommendations.
