Mental health around and after the menopause

, : Mental health around and after the menopause. Menopause International 17(4): 142-147

The menopause is a time in a woman's life when it is recognized that biological and social changes can impact upon mental wellbeing. Several studies have investigated the relationship between menopause and psychological symptoms, especially depression, with mixed results. In part, this is due to a considerable overlap between depressive symptoms and those due to declining estrogen levels, causing challenges in assessment. However it appears that vulnerable women are at a higher risk of succumbing to depression during menopausal transition. Antidepressants remain the mainstay of treating depressive symptoms, with little conclusive evidence for hormone replacement therapy. Memory problems during menopause are a common complaint, but there is no demonstrated link to subsequent dementia. This paper also reviews considerations of diagnosis and treatment of postmenopausal depression.

Filling protein, dry gluten, proteolytic enzyme activity, nonprotein N and insoluble pentosans, as well as the falling number and baking value, were determined in grain from 12 strains and varieties of rye from 2-yr harvests. Most of the character...

The plutonium body burden of five male Lapps was determined through radiochemical analysis of bone, liver and lung samples, and compared with the body burden of male southern Finns. Tissue burdens of plutonium were found equal in the Lapps and sou...
