Menopause

Will menopause affect my diabetes?

A Answers (2)

  • Diabetes is a function of insulin resistance or insulin production, neither of which are affected by menopause. However, menopause is associated with changes in cholesterol levels. This, combined with the inherent health risks of diabetes, increases the risk of cardiovascular disease after menopause.
  • Yes. The changes in hormonal levels and balance, may lead to blood glucose levels that are out of control. Women with diabetes may develop premature menopause, which can result in an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
