Dementia Connections: Menopause & Your Brain

Dementia Connections: Menopause & Your Brain

Dementia Connections: Menopause & Your Brain. Studies have shown that postmenopausal women may experience changes in memory, cognitive function, and an elevated risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia. Estrogen's neuroprotective effects include promoting the production of neurotransmitters and enhancing cerebral blood flow, which are vital for optimal brain function. The abrupt hormonal shifts during menopause may contribute to the disruption of these processes.

Understanding the intricate interplay between menopause, hormones, and dementia is crucial for developing targeted interventions and therapies. While research is ongoing, maintaining hormonal balance and adopting lifestyle measures that support cognitive health during menopause may prove pivotal in reducing the risk of dementia in postmenopausal women.
