Estrogen in the brain prevents obesity and glucose intolerance during menopause in lab animal study
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have found that adding estrogen in the brain may improve health in obese females after menopause.
The study conducted by Christina Estrada, a doctoral candidate in the UC psychology graduate program in the laboratory of Matia Solomon, PhD, an Associate Professor in the UC Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, used surgically-induced menopause to cause obesity in rats and identified brain areas that benefit from estrogen replacement. The findings will be presented this week at the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB).
