hotflashes

ScienceDaily — Hot flashes happen when a woman’s hormonal levels drastically change; though some encounter faints because of the impact. Heat is felt first on the face, then on the back and neck, with excessive sweating, when the environment says otherwise. Overweight and obese women are the ones most likely to experience these bothersome flashes, and this is especially true for those in the menopausal age. It had been published in the Archives of Internal Medicine (just one of the helpful journals in the JAMA archives) that a good weight loss program may help to counter these hot flashes.
Researchers note that hot flashes happen to women with a higher body mass index (with BMI being calculated as weight in kg divided by height in meters squared) and are reported to be more persistent and terrible. While those women in the normal BMI, they don’t suffer as much.
University of California expert Alison J. Huang, M.D along with other colleagues did a six month trial gathering data from more than 300 women who were obese, overweight, and complained of urinary incontinence. To see whether a good weight loss program could alleviate sever hot flashes, researchers assigned a behavior and lifestyle program to the group receiving intensive intervention which entailed 9% of initial weight loss on the first 6 months. They were given one hour group sessions to ask the nutrition and exercise experts. This also included more physical activity – at least 200 minutes of brisk walking (or an exercise equivalent in terms of intensity) were imposed to this particular group. Dietary intake was naturally part of the intervention program; strict instructions were given to abide by a reduced calorie diet, though meal alternatives or replacements were offered.
Analyses illustrate that women who had higher BMIs and abdominal circumferences who often complained of hot flashes say that they felt significant improvements after losing weight. for those who reported frequent and severe hot flushe
According to the authors, in analyses of all women reporting bothersome hot flushes at the initial stages, decreases in weight, BMI and abdominal circumference were each associated with improvement in self-reported hot flushes during six months. However, there were no significant associations between changes in physical activity, calorie intake, blood pressure or overall self-reported physical and mental functioning and change in bothersome flushing.
Researchers further conclude that symptoms were relieved after these obese and overweight women pursued behavioral weight loss techniques. It only goes to show that relief of these hot flashes are is only caused by weight loss per se, but it had to involve some change of attitudes towards weight loss.
