Yoga activities may lessen cardiac problems and avoid diabetes. This study assessed the reaction time, metabolic markers, and wellness score of postmenopausal diabetes patients to compare the benefits of yoga and therapy. The data supporting a link between lung function and menopause is sparse and contradictory. This study aims to assess postmenopausal women's pulmonary function test (PFT). PFTs were measured using a digital spirometer in 49 premenopausal and 46 postmenopausal women. A number of PFT metrics showed a significant reduction. Conclusions: Low lung function is related to menopausal state.
