Menopause and Heart Disease Risks |

During menopause, women have dips in the estrogen, redistribution of their body fat, gain some weight, increase their cardiovascular risks, pressure tends to go up and cholesterol changes as well, describes Dr. Lauren Frost, Cardiologist with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
The specialist says if a woman has a high risk of cardiovascular disease or has known coronary disease, supplementing estrogen is dangerous, because it can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
She prefers to use anti-anxiety medications to help manage some of the anxiety associated with hot flashes, because those medications are safe for heart disease. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
