Does menopause increase your risk of diabetes?

There's probably a few ways to look at this. Some women will find that they gain weight as they go through menopause, which can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Importantly, it is weight gain that increases the risk of diabetes, not the actual menopause itself. That is to say, if you go through menopause without gaining excess weight, you are not at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, compared to prior to menopause.

A study of 708 premenopausal women and 529 postmenopausal women (328 of which underwent natural menopause) who were at high risk of diabetes found that menopause was not associated with an increased risk of diabetes. The aim of the study was to compare a Diabetes Prevention Program which involved lifestyle intervention, the use of metformin (a medication that lowers blood sugar levels), and a placebo pill. The participants were investigated for diabetes each year.

Overall, the study outcome showed no significant difference between metformin and the lifestyle intervention, and the placebo group. In addition to this, menopause didn't have any significant effect on body mass index or waist circumference (i.e. this does not rule out a connection with women who do gain weight during menopause as suggested by Gene).

No, menopause is not itself associated with an increased risk of diabetes, type 1 or 2. However, although menopause is not be associated with increased type 2 diabetes risk it is still important that you take care of yourself and take precautions to reduce type 2 diabetes risk (e.g. exercise, eat a sensible diet, maintain a healthy weight). This is because as people get older their risk of type 2 diabetes increases.

On the whole older peoples' bodies are less sensitive to the effects of insulin (regardless of body size). Some research has indicated that their insulin sensitive is reduced by up to 50%. In addition to this, there will be a decrease in glucose tolerance. At least 50% of people with impaired glucose tolerance will eventually develop diabetes.
