The risk factors include raised blood pressure, dyslipidemia (raised triglycerides and lowered high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), raised fasting glucose, and central obesity. The 101 postmenopausal women and  20 women without menopause were referred to the study. The level of endogenous intoxication investigated by test of the absorption ability of erythrocytes (AAE). Menopause caused high level of endogenous intoxication, determine by absorption ability of erythrocytes test, which correlate with triglyceride and LDL-cholesterol levels. There is no difference in level of endogenous intoxication in postmenopausal women with or without metabolic syndrome. New trials with evaluation of other parameters of inflammation are required.
