ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN SERUM FOLIC ACID LEVEL AND THE RISK OF ENDOMETRIAL HYPERPLASIA IN PERIMENOPAUSE
Keywords:Folic acid, endometrial hyperplasia, perimenopause
The results of our study demonstrated that endometrial hyperplasia was also characterized by unchanged levels of folic acid. The findings of our study are necessary in understanding the significance and role of vitamins in the endometrial hyperplasia. We found that folic acid administration for 8 weeks at a dosage of 1 mg/d for women with EH improved vasomotor symptoms. This suggests that folic acid supplementation may have advantageous therapeutic potential for women with EH.
