Metabolic characterization of menopause: cross-sectional and longitudinal evidence

Wang et al. BMC Medicine 2018;16:17

This paper investigates the cross-sectional and longitudinal associations of reproductive status with 74 metabolic biomarkers.

Results show consistent cross-sectional and longitudinal associations of menopause with a wide range of metabolic biomarkers, suggesting the transition to menopause induces multiple metabolic changes independent of chronological aging.
