  1. Perimenopausal increase in serum cholesterol : a 10-year longitudinal study.

    Article - En anglais

    The relative contribution of menopause to the age-related increase in serum total cholesterol concentration in women is not exactly known.

    Cross-sectional studies suggest a considerable contribution of menopause, whereas in short-term longitudinal studies, only a small increase was observed around menopause.

    In a 10-year follow-up study (1979-1989), serum total cholesterol concentration and dietary intake were measured annually in 167 healthy perimenopausal women (initially aged 49-56 years) who lived in the mixed rural/industrial community of Ede, the Netherlands.

    The longitudinal design enabled us to study the « natural course » of serum total cholesterol concentration and the influence of dietary fat intake during and after cessation of ovulation.
