Sažetak

Menopausal transition is a period characterised by psychic, somatic changes as well as changes in reproductive capabilities
of a woman as a consequence of ovarian’s function termination. Menopausal transition includes the stage of premenopause
and perimenopause, to reach finally the menopause stage itself. The aim of this study is to determine the
differences in HDL concentrations at women in premenopause, perimenopause and postmenopause, and to determine the
connection between BMI and WHR with HLD concentrations during the menopausal transition, as well as to determine
the relation between menarche and length of reproductive age with HDL concentrations in menopausal transition. The
assesses included in this study were aged from 40 to 55, with average age 48.1 ± 3.9 years. The biggest average HDL
value was found at the group of postmenopausal assessees(1.65 mmol/L), and in comparison with the values in other two
groups, there is a significant difference (F=4.23, p=0.016). Based on the obtained results, we cannot conclude that there
is a significant relation between menarche and length of reproductive age and HDL among the premenopausal and postmenopausal
assessees. There is also a significant difference between WHR and HDL among the premenopausal and
perimenopausal assesses. In this study, we obtained astonishing result in comparison with the studies and researches
done so far, primarily referring to increased HDL at perimenopausal and postmenopausal assessees.
