Cardiovascular diseases occur due to atherosclerosis, weakened elasticity of blood vessels, hypertension, and cardiac rhythm disorders
Changes in the whole body of women are due to a decrease in estrogen and progesterone levels, and the interruption of menstruation is one of the most obvious changes that mark the onset of menopause.
Menopause-related problems include heat waves, mood swings, and sleep problems. But sometimes more severe and more serious difficulties can occur.
The drastic decline in female hormones is noticeable by each cell and tissue that reduces and changes its functions. Some clinical consequences of estrogen deficiency are early visible and pronounced, such as changes in brain functions, heat waves, insomnia, fatigue, and urogenital atrophy.
At the same time, development and atherosclerosis and osteoporosis are also accelerating. The elasticity and collagen in the connective tissue is lost, so the skin becomes thinner, wrinkles are pronounced, and the joints begin to hurt due to osteoarthritis.
Cardiovascular diseases occur due to atherosclerosis, weakened elasticity of blood vessels, hypertension, and cardiac rhythm disorders. Also, an important factor for cardiovascular disease is the lack of estrogen.
Before menopause, the myocardial infarction is significantly lower in women than in men of the same age.
Coronary heart disease occurs in males 10 years earlier and women with premature menopause are at significantly higher risk of heart attack and cardiovascular mortality. All this speaks of the protective role of estrogen.
Estrogen increases vasodilatation and affects normal heart rhythm, slows calcification of blood vessel walls and atherosclerosis.
