150: Do postmenopausal women need to worry about iron overload?
Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 150
Question: Do postmenopausal women need to worry about iron overload?
Generally, it's not men who are necessarily predisposed to iron buildup. It’s men with some genetic predisposition to that, so maybe less than 10% of men. But yeah, postmenopausal women with the same genetics will, like men, be vulnerable to that. When you stop menstruating, you essentially become like a man in terms of your ability to accumulate iron.
