As women enter their 40s and 50s, many begin to notice changes in their bodies, due primarily to changes in hormone levels. Menopause is a normal process of aging that affects every woman differently. Becoming familiar with the signs, symptoms and options to relieve symptoms is the first step to managing menopause — rather than allowing it to manage you!
By making a few changes to your diet and lifestyle, menopause doesn’t have to interfere with your life.
Discuss prescription hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with your physician if lifestyle changes do not offer the level of symptom relief desired. HRT can help control hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness, as well as prevent osteoporosis. HRT increases the risk for blood clots, breast cancer, stroke and heart attack. Discuss your symptoms with your physician, who will determine if HRT is right for you.
Dietary supplements may help relieve some symptoms. Supplements and other products that come from plants may seem safe and claim to help improve menopausal changes. Be sure to consult with your physician before taking dietary and/or herbal supplements.
Your physician is here to help you through this new and sometimes challenging chapter in your life. If you don’t have a doctor, call Norton Healthcare’s free physician referral service at (502) 629-1234.
