Resumen

VARGAS CHAVEZ, Marlene; AGUERO PALACIOS, Ysela  y  SOBERON LOZANO, María M.. Homocystein levels in menopausal women from Lima, Peru. An. Fac. med. [online]. 2012, vol.73, n.3, pp. 211-214. ISSN 1025-5583.

Objectives: To compare serum homocysteine levels according to menopausal status in a group of women. Design: Descriptive and correlational study. Setting: Biochemistry and Nutrition Research Center, Faculty of Medicine, Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Lima, Peru. Participants: Women 40 to 60 year-old. Interventions: The menopausal status was determined clinically and by serum FSH and estradiol in 97 women 40 to 60 year-old attended at San Bartolome Hospital, Lima, Peru. Plasma homocysteine was determined by fluorescence polarization immunoanalysis. Main outcome measures: Homocysteine levels. Results: Homocysteine levels were within international referential values (5-15 µmol/L). Postmenopausal women levels were significantly higher compared to premenopausal women levels (p< 0.05). Conclusions: Homocysteine levels are increased in menopausal women and could be considered in cardiovascular disease prediction.

Palabras llave : Plasma homocysteine; premenopause; postmenopause; follicle stimulating hormone (FSH); estradiol; cardiovascular risk.
