In the study “Predictors of the Age at which Natural Menopause Occurs in Women with Type 1 Diabetes: The Pittsburgh Epidemiology of Diabetes Complications (EDC) Study” by Yi et al, 109 women with Type 1 diabetes were evaluated. The authors determined that higher average levels of insulin dose and albumen excretion rates were associated with a younger age at which natural menopause took place, and thus early menopause may increase medical issues diabetics have to deal with.

Menopausal women commonly experience palpitations, which can lead to an uncomfortable feeling. In the study “Independent Association of Palpitation with Vasomotor Symptoms and Anxiety in Middle-aged Women” by Enomoto et al, the authors found that palpitations were associated with vasomotor symptoms and anxiety. If the woman was severely affected by  palpitations, her systolic pressure was higher and she tended to exercise less. Thus palpitations, aside from an uncomfortable feeling, may be detrimental to a woman’s health.
