Slim Down to Reduce Hot Flashes
A pilot study of overweight and obese menopausal women found that they were able to reduce their hot flashes. The study divided 40 women into weight loss and control groups. The results were that “women randomized to weight loss also showed greater reductions in questionnaire-reported hot flashes than did women in the control group.” The authors concluded that “reductions in weight and hot flashes were significantly correlated.”
One more reason to lose weight and get fit, especially as you get older.
