The menopause foggy brain is being confirmed in studies focused on examining claims of memory loss and mood changes.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the onset of the menopause foggy brain is linked to BRCA gene mutations.
Back in January of this year, another study confirmed the memory loss associated with the menopause foggy brain. Researchers have found that fluctuating levels of hormones during menopause can lead to memory loss and other cognitive changes, especially in the first year after a woman’s last menstrual cycle.
In this newer study published on menopause, eight tests of memory and attention were administered to 68 women ranging in age from 44 to 62 who were suffering from moderate to severe hot flashes.
Researchers found that the menopause foggy brain is a link between memory loss and moods. Women who reported they were not in a good mood, or were depressed, scored lower in a series of psychological tests of attention and memory.
Dr. Margery Gass, the executive director for The North American Menopause Society and a gynecologist at Cleveland Clinic, gave some tips for dealing with the menopause foggy brain:
“The good news for women is that there’s proof that their perception about their performance is real. Women should become proactive, make notes and lists, and make use of the little tricks that helps us perform better.”
