The Effects of Acupressure on Menopausal Symptoms: A Randomized Controlled Study

Objectives: The aim of this study was to see how weight cycling affected women's nutritional health and their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Materials and Methods: Between November 2018 and May 2019, 80 women aged 18 to 65 years old applied to the Nutrition and Diet Department of a Private Medical Center and consented to participate in the study. A questionnaire form was applied to the participants, anthropometric measurements and biochemical blood parameters were evaluated. The Finnish Diabetes Risk Score (FINDRISK) was used to determine the risk of T2DM. Results: 55 of the 80 women included in the study (68.8%) entered the weight cycle, while 25 (31.2%) did not enter the weight cycle. In terms of body weight, BMI, waist circumference, body fat mass, and HOMA-IR values, there was a statistically significant difference between the groups (p0.05). While the amount of total energy, protein, fat, cholesterol, and omega-6 fatty acids in the daily diet of women who entered the weight cycle was higher than those who did not enter the weight cycle, it was observed that the intake of carbohydrates and omega-3 fatty acids were lower (p>0.05). There was no significant difference between the groups regarding the FINDRISK score (p>0.05). Conclusion: Weight cycling is particularly frequent among women nowadays, and it is a significant risk factor for chronic illnesses in the coming years. Although this study's duration and sample number are limited, the data obtained emphasizes the effects of weight cycling on health.
