OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate whether the number of pregnancies during childbearing age was associated with diabetes in postmenopausal women with no history of gestational diabetes. METHODS: Our data source was the continuous National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999 to 2014. We selected 9,138 postmenopausal women over 40 years old who did not have a history of gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Logistic regression analyses were applied for the association of the number of pregnancies with diabetes...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of sarcopenia and associated factors in climacteric middle-aged women. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study carried out in Colombian Caribbean women (40-59 y, n = 403), who were surveyed with a form that included sociodemographic information and two validated tools (the Menopause Rating Scale and the SF-36 Health questionnaire). Calf circumference, handgrip, and gait speed were measured. Low muscle mass (calf circumference <31 cm), reduced muscle strength (<20 kg in handgrip), and lower physical performance (<0...

OBJECTIVES: Osteoporosis is a prevalent condition among postmenopausal women, and lacks satisfactory therapeutic options. Hydrogen (H2) has been shown to be effective in alleviating many diseases. This study aimed to investigate the effects of H2 on inhibiting osteoclastogenesis and bone loss in ovariectomized mice. METHODS: Osteoclast differentiation from Raw264.7 cells was induced with receptor activator NF-κB ligand (RANKL) with or without 60% H2. The number and resorption activity of osteocalsts were assessed by tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase staining and pit formation assay, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: Osteoporosis has become an important public health problem in China, especially among elderly postmenopausal women. Massive amounts of medical and health resources have been devoted to patients with osteoporosis and osteoporosis-related fractures. This study estimated the cost-effectiveness of alendronate, zoledronate, raloxifene, teriparatide, and calcium/vitamin D as treatments for osteoporosis in elderly postmenopausal women in China from the medical system perspective. METHODS: A Markov model was constructed by using TreeAge Pro 2015 software...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of two common interventions for bothersome postmenopausal vaginal symptoms on improving sexual frequency and pain. METHODS: This is a post-hoc analysis of data from a 12-week double-blind placebo-controlled trial that randomized postmenopausal women (ages 45-70 years) with moderate-severe genitourinary discomfort to vaginal 10 μg estradiol tablet plus placebo gel (n = 102), placebo tablet plus vaginal moisturizer (n = 100), or dual placebo (n = 100)...

OBJECTIVE: Past studies indicate that >90% of breast cancer survivors taking adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) experience menopausal symptoms including sexual problems (eg, vaginal dryness, dyspareunia); however, research examining the impact of these problems on quality-of-life is limited. This cross-sectional study examined (1) the impact of sexual problems and self-efficacy for coping with sexual problems (sexual self-efficacy) on quality-of-life (ie, psychosocial quality-of-life and sexual satisfaction), and (2) partner status as a moderator of these relationships...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to review the management of endometrial hyperplasia in a woman undergoing liver transplantation for alcoholic cirrhosis. METHODS: This is a case presentation on a postmenopausal woman with a tissue diagnosis of endometrial intraepithelial neoplasia managed with a levonorgestrel intrauterine device, before and after liver transplantation. Full written informed consent was obtained from the patient to present her case. RESULTS: The patient experienced resolution of her endometrial intraepithelial neoplasia with conversion to atrophic endometrium after management with levonorgestrel intrauterine device...

OBJECTIVE: Women's sleep at menopause is widely reported to be problematic. The Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) is a commonly used tool for quantifying sleep problems in clinical and research settings, but psychometric properties in postmenopausal women have not been reported. Our study aim was to examine the factor structure of the ISI in a large and diverse sample of midlife women with hot flashes. METHODS: Baseline data were from 899 women enrolled in one of the three clinical trials using similar entry criteria conducted by the Menopause Strategies Finding Lasting Answers to Symptoms and Health research network...

OBJECTIVE: We analyzed tamoxifen use as a malignancy risk factor in women with endometrial polyps. METHODS: This retrospective study included 675 women who underwent hysteroscopic polypectomy in 2010 to 2015 at the University of Campinas. Women were divided into tamoxifen use (n = 169) and no tamoxifen use (n = 506) groups. The primary outcome was endometrial cancer prevalence. Dependent variables included age, parity, years since menopause, presence of abnormal uterine bleeding, endometrial pattern on hysteroscopy, and endometrial thickness...

OBJECTIVE: The association between hormone therapy (HT) and the risk for sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) in postmenopausal women has been described only in case reports. No large study has further evaluated the association between HT and the risk of SSNHL in postmenopausal women. The objective of our study was to investigate whether postmenopausal women with HT exhibit a risk of SSNHL. METHODS: This matched cohort study enrolled 13,112 postmenopausal women 45 to 79 years of age who used HT between 2000 and 2010; they were selected from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan, and 39,336 participants without HT use were enrolled as controls matched by age and index year at a 1:3 ratio...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report on two women in early menopause with alopecia and high mercury (Hg) levels which reversed with a decrease in toxic levels. METHODS: Retrospective chart review and case studies in a reproductive endocrinology practice.
