The relationship between the parameters of heart rate variability (HRV), the levels of norepinephrine (NE) and leptin, and the menopausal status is still poorly understood, although there is some evidence suggesting distinct influence of estrogens on the above-mentioned indicators. AIM To characterise the influence of menopause on indices of… CONTINUE READING
