Menopause tied to faster decline in women's lung function
Posted on December 07, 2016
December 2016 - Age-related decline in women's lung function may speed up during and after menopause, a recent study suggests.
Past research has shown that young women can boost their lung function through their mid-twenties by following a healthy lifestyle that includes getting plenty of aerobic exercise and avoiding cigarettes. After that, lung function declines gradually, and the process can be sped up when people smoke or carry excess fat around their midsection.
