  • 목적 : 갱년기 여성은 내장비만의 위험이 높으며 또한 심리적 변화를 겪는 시기이다. 갱년기 여성의 복부지방, 내장지방, 피하지방 및 이와 관련된 단순비만지표, 간울증, 스트레스, 우울, 자존감 등을 조사하여 갱년기 건강의 위협이 되는 신체 심리 인자를 알아보고자 이 연구를 시행하였다. 방법 : 병원공고를 통해 체질량지수 $23kg/m^2$ 이상 비흡연자인 만 45세 이상 55세 이하의 폐경 전후의 갱년기 여성 환자를 모집하여 2007년 8월 20일부터 24일까지 47명이 모집되었으며 이중 체질량지수 $25kg/m^2$ 이상이면서 복부 전산화 단층촬영 상 내장지방이 $100cm^2$ 이상인 20명의 단순비만지표, 체성분검사, 혈액검사, 복부 전산화 단층촬영 및 한방비만변증 (간울) 및 스트레스, 우울, 자존감 설문검사 결과의 상관성을 분석하였다. 본 연구는 경희대학교 동서신의학병원의 임상연구심사위원회의 승인을 받았다. 결과 : 1. 갱년기 비만여성에서 복부지방 면적, 피하지방 면적은 체질량지수, 체지방률, 허리둘레/신장비 등의 단순비만지표와 유의한 상관성을 보인 반면 (p < 0.01), 내장지방 면적은 단순비만지표와 상관성을 보이지 않았다. 2. 내장지방 면적은 사회 재적응 평가척도 (${\gamma}=0.577$, p < 0.01)와 유의한 상관성이 있었고, 선형회귀분석에서 유의한 결과를 나타냈다. $VAT(cm^2)=116.1+0.101{\times}(SRRS\;score)$ (${\gamma}^2=0.332$) 3. 피하지방은 식이태도 점수와, 총복부지방은 식이태도 점수 및 갱년기지수 중 혈관운동증상과 상관성이 있었다. 4. 간울증은 스트레스 반응척도, 우울지수, 갱년기지수 및 그 하부항목 중 혈관운동, 정신, 운동, 소화, 전신증상과 양의 상관성을, 자존감척도와는 음의 상관성을 나타냈으며, 내장지방과 직접적인 상관성을 보이지 않았다. 결론 : 간울증은 높은 스트레스, 우울, 갱년기 증상 및 낮은 자존감과 관련되는 것으로 나타났다. 폐경전후 비만여성에서 내장지방 면적은 간울증과 유의한 상관성을 보이지 않았으나, 생활 스트레스 사건이 많을수록 높아지는 것으로 나타나 갱년기 여성 내장비만에서 스트레스에 대한 대처가 중요할 것으로 사료된다. 추후 임상적 연계성 및 설문 보완에 대한 연구가 필요하리라 생각된다.

  • In this study, the effect of Goheung pomegranate extract on postmenopausal syndrome was evaluated both in vitro and in vivo in ovariectomized Sprague-Dawly (SD) rats. Sixty female SD rats were divided into six groups: sham, sham operation and distilled water; OVX, ovariectomized and distilled water; PE1, ovariectomized and pomegranate concentrate (0.75 mL/twice/d); PE2, ovariectomized and pomegranate concentrate (1.5 mL/twice/d); PE3, ovariectomized and pomegranate concentrate (2.2 mL/twice/d); and CE, ovariectomized and commercial pomegranate concentrate (2.2 mL/twice/d). Percent bone volume (bone volume/tissue volume) and trabecular thickness (Tb.Th) improved in a dose-independent manner in PE1, 2, and 3. Especially, bone mineral density was significantly improved in PE3 (P<0.05) compared to OVX. Pomegranate extract reduced body weight and visceral fat mass. High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) level slightly increased in a dose-independent manner in the experimental group. In addition, HDL-C/total cholesterol level of PE3 significantly increased (P<0.05) compared with OVX. These results show that pomegranate concentrate improved blood lipid levels and bone metabolism in ovariectomized rats. Therefore, Goheung pomegranate concentrates are expected to improve cardiovascular and bone-related diseases in menopausal women.

  • Objectives : The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical effects of ascending kidney water and descending heart fire pharmacopuncture treatment for hot flush and sweating. Methods : Ascending kidney water and descending heart fire pharmacopuncture is achieved by injecting pharmacopuncture on a specific acupoint to change from the state of water-fire disharmony to harmonious state. Hwangryunhaedok-tang (黃連解毒湯) pharmacopuncture is injected on both side Gyeonjeong (GB 21 ), Pungji (GB 20 ). Total 0.4 cc was injected by 0.1 cc each point. BUM (Bear’s gall bladder, ox bezoar and musk) pharmacopuncture is injected on both side Jeonjung (CV 17 ), Jungwan (CV 12 ), Gihae (CV 6 ). Total 0.15 cc was injected by 0.05 cc each point. Treatment was done daily. The method of evaluation are Hot Flush Score (HFS), VAS and sweating areas. Results : In case 1, after treatment hot flush score was reduced from 24 to 4 points. VAS scale was reduced from 7 to 2. It took about two weeks for the symptoms to decrease by half. Associated symptoms almost did not stay at discharge. In case 2, after treatment hot flush score was reduced from 28 to 2 points. VAS scale was reduced from 10 to 3. And emotional symptoms were reduced about 70%. In case 3, after treatment hot flush score was reduced from 8 to 1 points. VAS scale was reduced from 6 to 1. And headache and chest discomfort symptoms have disappeared. Conclusions : Ascending kidney water and descending heart fire pharmacopuncture treatment is effective for improve ascending kidney water and descending heart fire energy. Therefore, it will be used to alleviate hot flush and sweating.

  • We investigated the effect of peanut sprout extract (PSE) on andropause symptoms. PSE was evaluated for impotency and benign prostatic hyperplasia via phosphodiesterase (PDE) or 5-alpha reductase II inhibition assay. Inhibition of PDE and 5-alpha reductase II activities in PSE was significantly higher than that of the non-treated control. To investigate the effects of testosterone levels by PSE, we performed cell media test using TM3 cells. Production of testosterone in TM3 cells was elevated by PSE. These results indicate that PSE was able to alleviate andropause symptoms.

  • The purpose of this study was to compare the climacteric symptoms and emotion of Korean women living in the United States and Korea. The 195 subjects consisted of 81 women who have lived for more than 10 years in the United States and 114 women who live in Korea. All the subjects were from 40 to 60 years of age. Data were collected by convenience sampling using a questionaire in the west and mid-west regions of the United States and in Kyungbuk province in Korea. The results of this study are as follows : 1. Both subjects in the United States and Korea showed the highest negative emotions according to the following ; in the 50-54 years of age group, divorced, less than high school graduation, lower income level and Protestant in religion. So we concluded that the cultural differences between the United States and Korea did not exert an important influence on the women's emotional tendency, but personal characteristics and background did. 2. Emotional tendency of Korean women from 40 to 60 years of age living in United States and Korea was slight negative (Korean-American ; $3.97{\pm}.94$, Korean ; $3.90{\pm}.71$) 3. The emotions of women living in the United States showed a significant difference according to the state of health(F=3.7726, p<.05).The emotions of women living in Korea showed a significant difference according to marrital status(F=6.4733, p<.05). 4. There were negative correlations between the number of climacteric symptoms and emotions.

  • The purpose of this study was to examine the question of whether there is any difference in dietary habits, climacteric symptoms, and general health characteristics of middle-aged women according to food supplements (FS) use. A total of 745 midlife females participated in a face-to-face interview conducted by qualified interviewers, which guaranteed a higher quality of data collection. Three levels of FS use were defined: None, Single, and Multi for 0, 1, and 2 or more types of FS use, respectively. None, Single, and Multi accounted for 33.56%, 33.29%, and 33.15% of total subjects, respectively. FS users (Single and Multi) exerted more interest in FS and were more likely to believe that FS is helpful for health promotion and amelioration of climacteric symptoms than None (P<0.0001). Self-perceived health status of Multi was lower than that of None, but not different from Single (P<0.05). Factor analysis extracted three factors for dietary habits: regularity, variety and moderation, and four factors for climacteric symptoms: emotional, physical, psycho-somatic, and hot flash. The factor scores for dietary variety as well as emotional, psycho-somatic, and hot flash symptoms were higher for FS user than for None (P<0.01). Single reported more frequent family meals compared to None. Findings of the present study elucidated potential links between the level of FS use, dietary habits, and climacteric symptoms of middle-aged women, suggesting a possible scenario: the greater the climacteric symptoms a woman perceives, the more likely the woman will adopt FS use, the greater the efforts toward dietary improvement, such as dietary variety. Based on that, in this study, more peri-menopausal women belonged to Single and Multi; further investigation on the association between FS use, dietary quality, and climacteric symptoms in conjunction with menopausal status may be needed.
