A recent study found that menopause causes metabolic changes in the brain that can increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease in women. “This study suggests there may be a critical window of opportunity, when women are in their 40s and 50s, to detect metabolic signs of higher Alzheimer’s risk and apply strategies to reduce that risk,” Dr. Lisa Mosconi, associate director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian, said in a news release. The study showed that women who had undergone menopause or were peri-menopausal had significantly lower levels of glucose metabolism in key brain regions compared to women who were pre-menopausal. Low levels of glucose metabolism in the brain has been linked to the earliest development of Alzheimer’s disease.
