Abstract

Objective: Lifestyle patterns are not only related to healthy life but also could be related to modifying menopausal symptoms. Considering the lack of data, the present study aimed to evaluate the relationship between lifestyle and vasomotor symptoms among Iranian postmenopausal women. Materials and Methods: The present cross-sectional questionnaire-based study was conducted among 302 eligible postmenopausal women referring to Shahroud health centers (Shahroud, Iran) during June 2017 and October 2018. The Iranian standard questionnaire on women health project (Saba questionnaire) was used for data collection. Our data were analyzed using the SPSS software (version 18). Descriptive statistics, Chi-square test, Fisher's exact test, and multiple logistic regression were used to address sociodemographic characteristics among our participants and the relations between lifestyle and vasomotor symptoms. Results: We found a significant relation between daily dairy units (P = 0.05), daily vegetable units (P = 0.01), weekly use of solid oils (0.01), and hot flush. The relation between daily vegetable units and urinary incontinence was also statistically significant (P = 0.02). When we use multiple logistic regression, we found significant predictive relations between daily vegetable unit status (P = 0.01), weekly use of solid oils (P = 0.04), body mass index (P = 0.03), and hot flush. Conclusion: The study provided findings to support the probable relation between some of lifestyle-related variables and vasomotor symptoms in postmenopausal women.
