Study suggests that working out could help moderate them in menopausal women.
Menopausal women who exercise may experience fewer hot flashes, according to researchers. Women who are relatively inactive or are overweight tend to have a risk of increased symptoms of perceived hot flashes, noted the study.
Steriani Elavsky, author of the study and colleagues studied 92 menopausal women for 15 days. The women were 40 to 59 years old, with an average of two children and were not on hormone therapy. During analysis the researchers separated the women into normal weight and overweight categories and higher fit and lower fit categories.
"For women with mild to moderate hot flashes, there is no reason to avoid physical activity for the fear of making symptoms worse," said Elavsky adding, "In fact, physical activity may be helpful, and is certainly the best way to maximise health as women age. Becoming and staying active on a regular basis as part of your lifestyle is the best way to ensure healthy aging and well being, regardless of whether you experience hot flashes or not."
