Hot Flash | Menopause Symptoms and Memory Loss

Is Menopause Symptoms and Memory Loss linked in some way?

While you may experience the misery of hot flashes and mood swings as you enter menopause, one thing you can't blame on the "change" is memory loss.

In the latest study that exonerates menopause as a cause of impairing the ability to recall, Taiwanese researchers compared the memory of hundreds of women before they had any menopausal symptoms to their memory as they entered menopause.

They found the women who were going through the menopausal process scored as well or nearly as well on five different cognitive function tests. Results of the study are to be presented Oct. 4 at the American Neurological Association annual meeting in Toronto.

"When women go into perimenopause, they don't need to worry about cognitive decline," said Dr. Jong-Ling Fuh, an attending physician at Taipei Veterans General Hospital and an associate professor of Yang-Ming University School of Medicine.

The researchers said the myth of memory loss during menopause is a perception some women have because as they went through menopause, they felt their memory wasn't as sharp as it had been before. Studies suggesting that hormone replacement therapy might protect against dementia strengthened that belief. However, a large study later found that in older women, hormone replacement therapy not only didn't help protect women from dementia, but could actually increase the risk.

To try to answer the question of whether menopause did have any effect on memory, Fuh and her colleagues studied nearly 700 premenopausal women living on a group of rural islands between Taiwan and China. The Taiwanese government restricted access to these islands until the 1990s, so the authors report that the study's population was nearly homogeneous, which would help rule out other potentially causative factors of memory loss.

The women were between the ages of 40 and 54. None of them had had a hysterectomy, and none took hormone replacement therapy during the study. All took five cognitive tests designed to assess their memory and cognitive skills at the start of the study, and then again 18 months later. During the study period, 23 percent of the women began to have symptoms of menopause.

The researchers then compared the memory of the women who had entered menopause to those who had not, and found very little difference. In four of the five tests, there were no statistically significant differences in the two groups of women.

Only on one test was the difference statistically significant, and that difference, said Fuh, was very slight. This test was designed to assess verbal memory and involved showing the women 70 nonsensical figures. Some of the figures were repeated during the test, while most were not. The women were asked whether they had seen the figure earlier.

"For women, menopause does not mean you'll develop memory loss," said Dr. Raina Ernstoff, an attending neurologist at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich. As you're going through perimenopause and experiencing symptoms like hot flashes, she said, you may feel lousy and have trouble sleeping, which might temporarily affect your cognitive skills.

"I don't think declining estrogen levels are what causes memory loss," said Dr. Steven Goldstein, an obstetrician/gynecologist at New York University Medical Center in New York City. "It's not like your memory is bopping along, doing fine and then takes this big dive during menopause, like bone density can."

Both Ernstoff and Goldstein said they weren't aware of many women who believed that menopause might cause significant memory loss. They also both felt that results from this group of women who were so homogeneous might not apply to different groups of women, such as those living in more industrialized society. And they both said that other factors that weren't studied could play a role in memory loss, such as hypertension, which can contribute to vascular dementia.

Ernstoff also pointed out that the education backgrounds can play a large role in memory loss. Fuh acknowledged the researchers did attempt to control the data for educational differences.

MOTHERS DAY GIFT

It has come to that time of year again when we celebrate Mothers Day. We treasure our mother so we want to give her that one Mothers Day Gift that shows we love her. We care so we are going to remind ourselves what mom likes and think of mothers day ideas to surprise her.

It could be a last-minute rush but it's better to get a mothers day present than come empty-handed even if we live such hectic lives. For those who aren't so well off, there's always simple ideas like a mother's day poem or gift card. As the saying goes, its the thought that counts.

Our mothers are the ones that gave birth to us. Hours of labor and pain. Carrying us for all those months and showered us with love as only a mother can. It's the same all over the world. So we are going to give you some great ideas for mother's day gifts that you could give or didn't think of.

How about flowers? The simple yet practical present that will surely bring a smile to her face simply because she's a woman and which woman doesn't love flowers, especially if it came from someone she loves. Other ideas would be a gift basket, fruit basket, jewelry, a dress, a gift card, spa treatment for a day or maybe taking her to the hairdressers for a style redo. All these choices also depends on the age of your mother and lifestyle she leads. We have to remember that your mother has a mother too, namely your grandmother, and being the mother to your mother I'm sure you understand she celebrates this day as well because without her your mom wouldn't be here. A present for your grandmother would be nice too.

What about small kids? They need to be taught about the appreciation of this significant day that honors mothers because it strengthens the bonds of family. So helping them to get an inexpensive mothers day gift or something like a mothers day song would suffice. Perhaps some short mother's day poems to recite. These are simple but caring examples that kids can learn in appreciation of mom.

Whether we get an inexpensive, cheap, unique, high-end or simple gift it's going to be appreciated simply because it came from someone who loves her as much as she does in return. Even a hug and kiss makes as a beautiful present for mom. A mother is one of a kind and cannot be replaced. So Happy Mothers Day!
