Early vasomotor menopausal symptoms linked to increased CVD mortality 
 
Women who had vasomotor symptoms early in midlife and presented with signs and symptoms suggestive of myocardial ischemia were at a greater risk of dying due to cardiovascular disease than women in whom the menopausal symptoms occurred later, says a new study from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in the United States.
 
The WISE (Women's Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) recruited 254 women older than 50 years, postmenopausal, with both ovaries, not on HRT who had been referred for coronary angiography for suspected myocardial ischemia.
 
Mortality due to cardiovascular disease was higher in women in whom vasomotor symptoms developed early compared to those who never had vasomotor symptoms. Early onset of vasomotor symptoms in these women was also associated with endothelial dysfunction with lower flow-mediated dilation (FMD) compared to women with later onset symptoms.

New Delhi, 02nd October 2016: Have you ever wondered what is the reason behind the 9-day fast during Navratri? In addition to the religious reasons, fasts also help in the purification of the body by relaxing its metabolism. The consumption of low calorie and less spicy food items helps relieve the body of the extra work it has to do on a regular basis. However, this purpose gets defeated when people indulge in starchy and oily foods like potatoes and kuttu pakoras.
