ABSTRACT
The transition experienced by women menopause is associated with the development of features of the metabolic syndrome (MS), among which include: increased core abdominal fat, abnormal lipid profile and insulin resistance. Therefore, the prevalence of MS is increased with menopause up to 60%. The real importance of factors that influence cardiovascular risk in postmenopausal women is far from determined with accuracy and certainty; these patients should be treated early and comprehensive in order to reduce their mortality.
