Women in Great Britain are reporting significant differences in their symptoms when menopausis occurs, new data has shown.
The findings were published in the British Medical Journal.
Researchers from University College London and the University of Liverpool found that women were more likely to experience symptoms such as a sense of anxiety, depression and fatigue when menopausal symptoms are more severe, than women who did not experience symptoms.
They also found that menopausal women were significantly more likely than menopausal men to report experiencing symptoms of osteoporosis, high blood pressure, diabetes and weight loss, as well as more symptoms of breast cancer.
Researchers also found menopausal patients who experienced a worsening of symptoms of the other diseases were also more likely.
Dr Anne-Marie Czerniewska, from the University’s Institute for Health and Social Care, said: ‘The impact of menopauge on the symptoms of menopausal illness was a topic of interest for us.’
