“Midlife and the transition to menopause these are high-risk periods for women in terms of typical changes in body composition that increase the risk of adverse cardiometabolic outcomes," said Dr. Manson, professor of women's health at Harvard Medical School. .

Regular medical advice should include individualized advice and guidelines on healthy eating and physical activity”

"Counseling women should be a priority for physicians in clinical practice. And it's not just about whether or not weight gain shows up on the scale, but whether there's an increase in central abdominal fat, a decrease in lean muscle mass, and an increase in glucose tolerance."

A high body mass index increases the risk of many chronic conditions, such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, stroke, and all-cause mortality.

Midlife is a wonderful opportunity to encourage patients to assess their overall health status and make changes that will impact their future health."
