In the paper “Handgrip strength, dynapenia, and related factors in postmenopausal women” by García-Alfaro et al, the authors bring to light the relevance of measuring hand grip strength, as it may be associated with adiposity and bone density. As part of a physical exam, one can learn a great deal by shaking the patients’ hand and by observing their gait.

The study “Patterns of menstrual cycle length over the menopause transition are associated with subclinical atherosclerosis after menopause” by El Khoudary et al teaches us to pay attention to patterns of menstrual cycle length during the menopausal transition, for they may be a marker of future vascular health.
