Increase in visceral fat during menopause linked with testosterone
Date:8/20/2009

Janssen on testosterone's link with what is called the metabolic syndrome during the menopausal transition, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2008. That study, examining women six years before and six years after their final menstrual period, found that the rise in metabolic syndrome a collection of risk factors for heart disease corresponded with the rise in testosterone activity.

"For many years, it was thought that estrogen protected premenopausal women against cardiovascular disease and that the increased cardiovascular risk after menopause was related only to the loss of estrogen's protective effect," said Janssen. "But our studies suggest that in women, it is the change in the hormonal balance specifically, the increase in active testosterone that is predominantly responsible for visceral fat, and for the increased risk of cardiovascular disease."
