Underweight Women Enter Menopause Earlier

Your Health Minute

Underweight women have an early menopause.

In Your Health Minute, researchers at the University of Massachusetts looked at data from nearly 80-thousand women.

Those who were underweight in their teens, 20’s or 30’s were much more likely to reach menopause by age 45 than normal weight women.

Early menopause is linked to a higher risk of heart disease, cognitive decline and osteoporosis.
