Aging Verses Menopause Transition

What has the longitudinal nature of SWAN enabled it to distinguish?

In Research Explores the Impact of Menopause on Women’s Health and Aging, dated 06 May 2022, the (United States) National Institute on Aging (NIA) elaborate on:

“The longitudinal nature of SWAN has enabled it to distinguish some of the effects of midlife aging versus changes in health due to the menopausal transition — in essence, the effects of chronological age versus those of ovarian aging,” said Chhanda Dutta, Ph.D., with NIA.

For example, changes in cardiovascular health were more influenced by the menopausal transition, whereas increases in high blood pressure and Body Mass Index (BMI) were more attributable to chronological aging”.4
