Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. As survival rates are increasing, the long-term health problems of survivors now need attention. Many survivors develop sexual disorders as a consequence of either the side-effects of treatment or induced menopause. A panel of experts from various Spanish scientific societies (Spanish Menopause Society, SMS; Federación Española de Sociedades de Sexología, FESS; Sociedad Española de Médicos de Atención Primaria, SEMERGEN; and Sociedad Española de Oncología Médica) met to develop recommendations for the management of sexual health in breast cancer survivors based on the best evidence available...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between postmenopausal hormone therapy (HT) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHODS: Medicine and Alzheimer's disease (MEDALZ) is a nested case-control study of the entire Finnish population with clinically verified AD from 2005 to 2011 and up to 4 matched controls per case. This study comprises 230,580 women (46,117 cases and 184,463 controls). Data on HT use from 1995 to 2011 was extracted from the national prescription register using following ATC codes: G03C (estrogen), G03D (progestogen) and G03F (estrogen and progestogen in combination)...

OBJECTIVES: Antipsychotic drugs are frequently prescribed to elderly patients, but they are associated with serious adverse effects. The objective of the current study was to investigate the association between use of antipsychotics by elderly women and the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs). COHORT STUDY SETTING: Dispensing data were obtained from the PHARMO Database Network for the period 1998-2008. PARTICIPANTS: Ambulatory Dutch women (≥65 years) with current and past use of antipsychotics...

Exergaming has been shown to be an effective tool to improve postural control (PC) in older community-dwelling individuals. The outcome measures (OMs) used to assess PC are varied and this could limit the estimation of the effectiveness of the intervention. This systematic review and meta-analysis aims to explore the OMs currently used to assess PC in exergaming interventions, for healthy elderly individuals aged over 60 years. The literature search was conducted across five databases (CINAHL, EMBASE, PubMed, ISI, SPORTdiscus and Science Direct) using a range of search terms and combinations relating to exergaming, balance, exercise, falls and elderly...

It is now possible to detect the pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD) many years before symptoms and signs otherwise become manifest. Biomarkers of disease include evidence of amyloid and tau in the cerebrospinal fluid and neuroimaging which (for instance) allows amyloid in the brain to be visualized. There is, thus, a preclinical state in which it is possible to identify Alzheimer's pathology long before there is clinical evidence of disease. Much research focuses on this preclinical state because it seems likely that treatments will be more effective before the disease is established...

Protein-energy malnutrition is common amongst people aged 65 years and older, has a multifactorial aetiology, and numerous negative outcomes. Domiciliary carers (non-clinical paid carers) and family carers (including family, friends and neighbours) are required to support the increasing demand for in-home assistance with activities of daily living due to the ageing population. This review provides insight into the role of both domiciliary and family carers in providing individualised nutrition support for older, community-dwelling adults with malnutrition...

OBJECTIVES: Women's physical and mental ill-health shows a marked increase during menopause, which usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. Mental illness and somatic symptoms are common causes of long-term sick leave. Women suffer from a lack of knowledge about the menopause transition and its associated symptoms. The aim of the study was to investigate whether group education for women in primary health care (PHC) about the menopause transition can improve their physical and mental ill-health...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to investigate whether an elevated fasting insulin level predicts abdominal obesity. STUDY DESIGN: A cohort study was conducted with 13,707 non-obese Korean men. They were categorized into 4 groups according to the quartile of fasting insulin level, and followed up from 2005 to 2010. Incidence rates of obesity were compared among the 4 groups during follow-up, and a Cox proportional hazards model was used to calculate hazard ratios (HRs) for abdominal obesity according to fasting insulin level...

REVIEW

A vast majority of menopausal women suffer from vasomotor symptoms, such as hot flushes and night sweats, the mean duration of which may be up to 7-10 years. In addition to a decreased quality of life, vasomotor symptoms may have an impact on overall health. Vasomotor symptoms are associated with overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, and sympathetic overdrive in turn is associated with metabolic syndrome, which is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Menopausal hot flushes have a complex relationship to different features of the metabolic syndrome and not all data point towards an association between vasomotor symptoms and metabolic syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Inadequate dietary intake is a common problem amongst older acute-care patients and has been identified as an independent risk factor for in-hospital mortality. This study aimed to explore whether food and mealtime experiences contribute to inadequate dietary intake in older people during hospitalisation. METHODS: This was a qualitative phenomenological study, data for which were collected using semi-structured interviews over a three-week period. During this time, 26 patients aged 65 years or more, admitted to medical and surgical wards in a tertiary acute-care hospital, were asked to participate if they were observed to eat less than half of the meal offered at lunch...

REVIEW
Chee Kian Chew, Bart L Clarke
The treatment of osteoporosis is generally either by inhibition of bone resorption with antiresorptive agents or by stimulation of bone formation with anabolic agents. Currently, teriparatide (recombinant human parathyroid hormone 1-34 [rhPTH (1-34)]) is the only available approved anabolic agent in the U.S. Other anabolic agents are under investigation however. Abaloparatide is recombinant human parathyroid hormone-related peptide 1-34. This agent is an anabolic agent that appears more potent than teriparatide, and it may have more rapid onset of fracture reduction than teriparatide...

Preclinical studies have revealed the beneficial effects of genistein in pancreatic β-cell functions. The results of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in assessing the effects of genistein on glucose metabolism are inconsistent, however. The aim of this meta-analysis is to evaluate the effects of genistein on glucose control and insulin sensitivity in postmenopausal women. This study searched the Medline, PubMed, and Cochrane databases, and ClinicalTrials.gov for trials from January 1970 to February 2016...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze independently in men and women the incidence rate of and risk factors for hip fracture in a southern European population. Illiteracy, dementia, clinically significant depression and disability were factors to receive special emphasis. STUDY DESIGN: A community sample of 4803 individuals aged over 55 years was assessed in a two-phase case-finding study in Zaragoza, Spain, and was followed up for 16 years. Medical history and psychiatric history were collected with standardized instruments, including the History and Aetiology Schedule, the Geriatric Mental State (GMS) scale, and a Risk Factors Questionnaire...

OBJECTIVES: The present study examined the association between anorexia of aging and physical frailty among older people. STUDY DESIGN: An observational, cross-sectional cohort design was used with a sample of 4417 elderly Japanese citizens living in a community setting. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Frailty was operationalized as the following frailty components: slowness, weakness, exhaustion, low level of physical activity, and weight loss. Participants were grouped as non-frail, pre-frail, and frail, and categorized as anorexic or not using questionnaire cutoff scores...

Migraine is responsible for high rates of disability. In addition, it is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. This association is not limited to the brain in the form of stroke, but includes cardiac ischemia. The increased risk is most consistently described in the female population and in particular for migraine with aura. This article reviews the current knowledge on migraine and the associated risk of cardiovascular disease, with a focus on female-specific factors.
