Amongst the Indian women, early menopause has become a common issue. However, it has been warned that early menopause is related to heightened risk of heart disease or stroke.
An Indian doctor serving at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, US, asserted that women who enter menopause early are at double the risk of developing a cardiovascular disease or suffering a stroke.
Dr. Dhananjay Vaidya, an assistant professor in the department of general internal medicine, emphasized that if doctors are aware that a woman has entered menopause before turning 46, then she should be provided with proper care and should be suggested significant treatment, so that she can avoid the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Further, study carried by Dr. Vaidya highlighted that those women who are into the habit of smoking are more likely to go into menopause, two years before a non-smoker woman. Hence, it has been recommended that smoking should be quit.
However, figures have feared that there is more number of female smokers than male smokers, with female smokers smoking on an average 7 cigarettes in a day, in comparison to 6.1.
Dr. Vaidya said, "The association holds true in patients from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds and is independent of traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors". Study results emphasize that early menopause should be prevented.
