Menopause and Respiratory Allergies
Allergies can be frustrating at the best of time, but if you are struggling with the sudden onset or worsening of respiratory allergies during menopause, you may find yourself more miserable than before. The hormonal fluctuations of menopause can bring with them numerous symptoms, including moodiness, irritability and hot flashes. According to a new study published in the “Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology,” they may also be more likely to cause allergies.
The study examined more than 1,000 women between the ages of 45 and 56. Researchers examined women’s lung functions and hormone levels along with detailed information about their BMIs and menstrual histories. According to the study, women who had reached menopause or who were in perimenopause, or the period immediately preceding menopause, were twice as likely to experience respiratory allergies. Slender women were more likely to suffer from asthma and allergies than heavier women were.
Women seeking menopause natural treatment may find relief from their respiratory allergies by using saline to irrigate their nasal passages, which can reduce irritants and inflammation. Showering before bed or after spending time outside may also be able to remove irritants such as pollen. Some women may find it necessary to wear a surgical mask outside on days when the air is known to be heavily polluted. Reducing irritants in your home can help you feel more comfortable inside. Wash curtains regularly, replace your carpets with hardwood or tile and bathe your pets frequently.
