Premature sunburn increases the risk of dementia, research shows
WASHINGTON, DC / BEIJING: Chinese experts have found that women who start menopause before their normal age have a higher risk of developing dementia than other women.
It should be noted that the average global age of onset of menopause in women is around 50 years, however, many women have onset of menopause before and after it.
Premature onset of menstruation is not considered better from a women’s health perspective.
Wenting Hao of Shandong University in Jinan, China, and his colleagues analyzed the health information of more than 1.5 million women in an open source database called UK Biobank, which was collected between 2006 and 2010.
A careful analysis of this information revealed that women under the age of 40 had a 35% higher risk of developing dementia in old age than other women who started having senescence at an average age. Was
Similarly, the risk of dementia at the age of 65 was 1.3 times higher (130%) for women who started menopause before the age of 45 than for women.
However, the risk of dementia in women at the age of 52 years or older was almost the same as in women who witnessed the onset of dementia between the ages of 50 and 51.
The risk of stroke increases in women after the onset of menopause. Based on the fact that strokes affect the blood supply to the brain, experts believe that these women also have a higher risk of dementia. However, new research has not found a link between senescence, stroke and dementia.
