Hormone Replacements and Heart Health: What Every Woman Should Know

HORMONES AND YOUR HEART WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW The endocrine system is a network of glands and organs that produce, store, and secrete hormones. Hormones influence many aspects of the cardiovascular system, which includes the heart and blood vessels. While hormones play a key role in maintaining cardiovascular.

In the past, women sought relief from symptoms and a way to protect their heart by asking for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which consists of estrogen with or without progesterone. For healthy women looking for symptom relief, this is still an option. When you have a hormonal imbalance, you have too much or too little of a certain hormone.

Even tiny changes can have serious effects throughout your whole body. Think of hormones like a cake recipe. Menopause and Heart Disease: What You Need to Know. 661.

Estrogen, the natural hormone that produces the sexual characteristics of women, has been known to have a protective effect on the inner walls of blood vessels for many years, making it easier for. Thyroid – produces hormones associated with calorie burning and heart rate. Adrenal – produce the hormones that control sex drive and cortisol, the stress hormone.

Pineal – produces. Written by Kathleen Doheny. With Essie Ryodi, MD, and Ravi Dave, MD.

If you have hyperthyroidism or Graves’ disease, you know that the excess thyroid hormone produced by an overactive thyroid can speed up your heart as well as affect every other organ in your body, translating to heart palpations and feelings of nervousness and anxiety. Not only can the extra thyroid hormone make your heart beat faste. Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS) is a genetic disorder passed down from parents.

Because it is rare, many healthcare providers have never heard of FCS or may not know how to diagnose it. Here is what you need to know to keep your body in balance. If you’re younger than age 45, you need enough estrogen to provide protection against the long-term health effects of estrogen deficiency.

If you have lasting menopausal symptoms that significantly impair your quality of life, your doctor may recommend longer term treatment. Seek regular follow-up care. That study discovered that replacement hormones might elevate the risks of stroke and heart attacks in older women. However, most of the study’s participants were long past the start of menopause, or their last period. “We know that oestrogen protects us against heart disease, diabetes and strokes.

That’s probably why women don’t have as many of these illnesses in the run up to menopause as men do.

  • Thanks x this SO important information. I went on keto and I F last year and I lose 10 kilos but also lose my hair and my skin is full of acne. (sorry x my english)��������

  • Thank you TED-Ed. This video helped me understand the fact that when hormones enter the bloodstream, they bind with receptors which in turn changes the way cells behave

  • funny that when you mentioned diabetes only referred to type 1 which is by far the most unusual, type 2 is because hormones can work properly due to intramyocellular lipids

  • Glad I happened upon your video. So the liver regulates your hormones and if you have no gallbladder and a fatty liver, can you still do the metabolic hormone reset?

  • thank you for sharing ❤️
    I would’ve loved to see an animation for menstruation and pregnancy instead of a tampon and a pregnancy test.

  • shout out to students who’ve been studying biology and specially me for being awake until 5AM for learning and studying biology and more

  • I can’t believe that I had to go on youtube to get answers on a worksheet based off of the textbook that didn’t have the definitions of the major horomomes. Thanks, U.S. Department of education…

  • Hormones play a role in weight gain, fatigue, loss of sleep, and many more health problems. That’s why I use a hormone gel. The gel helps to lose weight, and improves sleep, skin, skin tone, mood, libido, and more. For me it has been a miracle in the working. http://www.newulife.com/kimross

  • Professor Walker and Dr A William Patrick  aka Dr Evil from the Austin Powers Films franchise, Dr Anna Dover, Dr Nicola Zammit, basically all of the endocrinologists at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh are in fact indeed dishonest and corrupt and I am going to drag them through every national newspaper after my mother and father die, and you can take that to the bank the blood bank

  • I did keto strictly for a year and loved it, used IF with it, felt so good… But it effected my hormones… My projesterone is still out of wack 6mths after coming off.

  • Horror story mine, abortion weren’t my child, recovering over all death an wrongs done to me, ruths story, dads trying to kill me, then rach story as well as Dan n mam poisioning. RACH story was hardest blow the van story i think weren’t right think they spiked but she escaped. Not so lucky with dad,he gets away cant be proved maybe. Shocking rach saved me ill always love u rach

  • What would happen if there wasn’t any hormones? Like human still grow up, but no puberty feature? or cannot gain energy due to the lack of insulin? Any other possibilities? Reply me if you have more assumptions

  • I’ve been wondering the side effects of vaccines on kids today. I see such strong comparisons with this shutdown. We’ve gone weeks without seeing friends at church, so when we meet up again the kids seem to have changed over night. Other kids seem to be stuck in time, so to speak. They don’t look bigger or look older. Everyone is astonished at how much my kids have grown (they’re huge…really and not in the outward direction). I think maybe the pituitary glad is affected which has stifled the growth hormone. I also think thats why adults in their 20’s and 30’s look so young as well. You just cant tell how old they are. They have chronic diseases but look really young.

  • For breast cancer, pills are given to eliminate/kill estrogen. What are your thoughts about it? Could you do a video about it? Any suggestions. Thanks doctor!!

  • Hi Dr. Mindy can you please make more videos about PCOS And INSULIN RESISTANCE. I been doing intermittent fasting and keto for the past 3 months I lost 25 pounds so far and I feel great! I’m having a hard time finding a Dr. that could help me manage my PCO. I’m losing massive amount of my hair, I’m going bold �� I don’t know what to do! Any suggestions on what to take or drink or use for my hair specially in my crown area. Please help.

  • Not good for a person without a loving partner, no children (babies), no dog, no family, and no touching (as in times of gov’t restrictions in response to their perceptions of corona)

  • Hey! It was grt feeling to connect with u…worth info too… Kindly guide bout pre post menopausal period so it ll help the womens to ease in thr journey…

  • Hello Dr. Mindy, I am overweight by around 20lbs and when I try to do Intermittent fasting to be active and reduce extra pounds I am getting dizziness and my Post Prandial glucose seems to be low so is intermittent fasting recommended for me? Have no issues in fasting glucose.

  • If I ate 40-50 grams net carbs I’d need way too much insulin (as one with T1D).

    20-30 grams Total carbs is what those with T1D require.

  • Excessive Cortisol agitates cellular balance preventing proper nutrient absorption due to induced stressor factors. This Lady knows what she’s talking about. I’m a dietary Endocrinologist.

  • Is there a safe way for heart patients to fast? I’m concerned more about my medication schedule & the need to eat when I take them twice/day.

  • What a great system! What a great design that Allah presents us to live as we are.. thanks Ted-Ed to teach us the greatness of the way everything is.

  • I’m so grateful to live in a time where i can look up a question to something that I am curious to get the scientific explanation for, and can come to TED Ed for an simply eloquent explanation that has scientific basis. And the cherry on the top is that it is wonderfully accompanied by creatively engaging animations. THANK YOU to all those who put time and effort into these videos. They are truly educating people more effectively than public schools ever had since their existence.

  • Dr Mindy, what do you have around fertility? I am 42 (almost 43) with a good period cycle, I have been able to conceive naturally, but due to egg health (I think?) I have had a series of ectopic pregnancies. I am overweight but due to your videos, I am about 15 pounds away from a “healthy weight”. How can I help my eggs become healthier enough to keep a full pregnancy? How can I help my hormones through fasting?

  • There actually wrong about how testosterone makes you grow taller, other people say it just makes you grow faster and some people say it just plays a small role and is mostly other hormones making you grow taller. The last one is correct

  • thank you so much for clarifying the hormonal hierarchy for everyone, this makes it understandable for me, this is such important information if you want to reap all the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, this helps a great deal, liked and subscribed.

  • Menopause reset… I started keto 2 months ago, I’m 51 and BAM! having insane hot flashes. So this makes sense! Although I’m super excited about the weight loss with keto, I’m more excited about resetting my health. My belief is if I’m eating and living healthy then my body will naturally respond and lower my cholesterol and drop some weight. Inflammation and body pain has already subsided! I no longer have water retention in my feet.. so I know I’m on the right path, but I NEED to know more. Thank you so much Dr Mindy!

  • My heart is filled with gratitude as I’m sharing my testimony to the entire universe on how herbal doctor oduntun cured me from herpes virus that has been spreading through my body, I suffered from herpes virus since 2007 I often see symptoms in my private area nd lips, anytime I use acyclovir drugs it will go away then return some months later.
    It was disheartening since i have been diagnosed but after finding herbalist oduntun and his reviews on instagram @herbalist_oduntun i was convinced that he meant be of great help to me so I contacted him to know more about his herbal products and how I can get it delivered to me here in Tajikistan,
    He then said that he will deliver the herbal package to me through the ups delivery service with the address I will provide that is after preparing the medication with the roots and herbs ingredients he will purchase from the traditional market, so I keep faith believing that I can be cured completely with what comes from nature since it herbal medicine i took the risk and pay him the amount he requested to get the ingredients he started preparation as soon as I send him the money and submit my home address for the delivery today I’m so happy sharing this to the world �� I’m panalle Isabella from Italy, for more information on how to get in touch with herbal doctor oduntun you can reach him on What’sApp:+2349039463501 or his (email:[email protected]) I’m a living testimony stay safe and stay bless ����.

  • I do fasting and exorcise. I fast every other day. I just relax and pray mainly. But I also exorcise every day. I do about 45 minutes to 1 hour a day ecorcise. But I do that with GOD. I �� pray as I go.

  • Very interesting talk thank you. Prof Walker mentioned his german colleagues ( 11:45) study on psychological stress, cortisol, and ‘humiliation’. What is the study publication?
