By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at OBGYN & Reproduction Week -- A new study on Diet and Nutrition Disorders is now available. According to news reporting originating in Izmir, Turkey, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Premature menopause in young women is associated with an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease. The present study was designed to determine vitamin D (vit D) and the coagulation parameters such as activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), PT, D-dimer, white blood cell (WBC), and mean platelet volume (MPV) levels, in primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) patients and control women with a normal menstrual cycle."
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Research Hospital, "A total of 43 patients with non-diabetic POI were studied in order to evaluate and compare with the control group comprising 33 women with a normal menstrual cycle. There was no significant difference between the groups for age and body mass index (BMI). D-dimer, WBC, MPV, PT, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol were higher in women with POI. APTT levels were also increased but missed the significance in POI group. Women with POI had significantly lower serum vit D levels compared with healthy control group. FSH level was positively correlated with D-dimer, WBC, MPV, and negatively correlated to vit D and serum D vit level was inversely correlated with MPV, APTT, D-dimer, FSH levels in individual women. The obtained results seem to indicate that POI patients had low-grade systemic coagulation and fibrinolytic activation as evidenced by elevated D-dimer, WBC, MPV, PT values potentially be used as indicators of risk factor for thrombosis and atherosclerosis in POI women."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "All of our patients with POI were deficient in vit D. These results also suggest that vit D deficiency plays important roles of POI women and associated with coagulation, independently from age and BMI."
