Association between vasomotor symptoms of menopause and cardiovascular disease.
Cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death in the Western world. It has been suggested that menopause might influence cardiovascular disease, for example through vasomotor symptoms like hot flushes and night sweats. Several recent studies showed that women with vasomotor symptoms have a worse cardiovascular profile (higher LDL-cholesterol, higher blood pressure etc.) compared with women without vasomotor symptoms. However, only three studies investigated the association between vasomotor symptoms and cardiovascular disease, showing opposite results. Therefore, this study wants to further investigate the association between vasomotor symptoms and cardiovascular disease.
