A new study confirms that what women have suspected: menopause will not create fat go up. The research finds that women undergoing perimenopause lost lean body mass and more than doubled their mass. The research demonstrates that body mass index (BMI) is a really important clinical instrument for predicting health events, like having diabetes or with cardiovascular illness — but is also a less helpful indicator of cardio-metabolic risk in older women.
