Does Menopause Affect Diabetes?

Will menopause affect my diabetes?
 

Answer

This question has been difficult for researchers to answer because it is hard to separate age and body weight when looking at women before they enter menopause. Most researchers say yes, menopause can affect diabetes. During menopause, the fluctuation of hormones and decreased estrogen in a woman's body can lead to increased blood glucose levels.
