Alzheimer's Disease: Who Is More Likely To Have This, Men Or Women?
In a study published in the journal Menopause, experts have recently found that women have better memories as compared to men. In all memory tests that have been used, women aged between 45-55 years have been reported to have performed better despite the fact that there was a notable decline around the menopause stage. Experts consider the research as an important factor in determining as to who is really prone to a greater risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Women And Menopause
It was recently found that women with healthy aging brains continue to have an edge over their male counterparts when it comes to memory function, even in midlife and older age.The findings obtained from the study were also known to have paved a way for further studies about the decline on memory that is usually observable in postmenopausal women. Research result suggests that those who have been through this stage of life are more likely found to have more difficulty on learning and processing information.
In one of their statements released by CBS News, director of research at the Connors Center for Women's Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Jill Goldstein, PhD, has claimed that Alzheimer's disease is already considered as an epidemic phenomenon across the world. If people were not properly educated and made aware of this condition, Goldstein adds that it is likely to fail the next generations to come. Furthermore, experts also explained how crucial it is to look for successful treatments since if you started fighting the illness at the onsets; it's like losing the battle as it just started.
Additionally, as per Med Page Today, JoAnn Pinkerton, MD, NAMS executive director, has also said that the current result suggests that lower estrogen levels is as seemingly important for women in their early menopause stage. She adds that although the results are applicable to women with persistent episodes of constriction of blood vessels in the body, a lot of research is still required when it comes to the effects of lowered levels of estradiol or commonly known as the major estrogen produced in the ovaries.
