dc.description.abstractObjective: To identify clinical, physical, life quality and nutritional aspects of Brazilian women during menopausal transition and postmenopausal periods. Methods: 115 women agreed to participate in the study. They were divided into two groups: GI - menopausal transition (n = 48) and GII - postmenopause (n = 67). The Kupperman-Blatt Menopausal Index (IMK) and Women's Health Questionnaire (WHQ), Food Frequency Questionnaire and functional capacity were used. All patients were examined and underwent clinical and gynecological examination. Results: There was no significant difference in IMK, WHQ and functional capacity in either group. There was a higher caloric intake, especially in sugars, in postmenopause women than in menopausal transition women. Both groups presented reduced parameters in life quality and functional capacity. Conclusion: Our data suggests that there is no significant difference between women in menopausal transition and postmenopause, except in relation to the nutritional parameter. In both groups, the women presented low quality of life and reduced functional capacity.en
