Wear Red Day 2022 and Menopause

Is there an association between heart disease, stroke and menopause?

In Health After Menopause: Cardiovascular Disease the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health elaborate on:

“Before menopause, women have a lower risk of heart disease than men, but as women age and their oestrogen levels fall after menopause, their risk of cardiovascular disease increases.

Blood pressure can increase after menopause, as can total cholesterol and LDL, or ‘bad cholesterol’. There can also be a decrease in HDL, or ‘good cholesterol’. Other blood fats such as triglycerides can also increase”.
