Foggy Thinking

According to the American Menopause Society, “there is no firm evidence that memory or other cognitive skills actually decline because of natural menopause”.  However, poor concentration and foggy thinking are common complaints during perimenopause and the years right after menopause.

More research is needed to determine the cause of these complaints.  However, estradiol is needed to transport glucose to the brain.  A hormone imbalance can lead to energy starved brain cells and foggy thinking.  Those with low adrenal function frequently complain of losing their train of thought, finding it harder to make decisions and being more absentminded.  This may be attributed to the hormone cortisol.  Although studies are lacking to prove the association, sleep disturbances and hot flashes may contribute to these symptoms, as well as dealing with various midlife stressors.

Women who are concerned about declining cognitive performance are advised to consult with their healthcare provider.  Remaining physically, socially, and mentally active may help prevent memory loss. Make positive lifestyle changes.
