This authoritative and user-friendly information source is designed to guide women through the experience of menopause. Written by well-known medical educator Dr. Neil Shulman and a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Edmund Kim, this accessible and highly informative handbook will answer the many questions a woman may have about menopause. Among the topics explored are: hot flashes, night sweats, changes in menstrual cycle, mood swings, weight gain, decrease in sex drive, and other typical symptoms of this time of life.
In view of the confusion surrounding hormone replacement therapy, the authors will be taking a survey among healthcare providers and publish the results for the first time in this book. They will explore the benefits and risks of hormone treatment, reviewing the various methods of administering hormones and stressing that no one treatment is right for every woman.
They will also discuss screening tests that may be crucial for a woman’s health at this stage of life, recommend certain healthy life-style changes, and consider a host of other relevant issues.
Complete with a glossary and recommendations for finding useful information on the Internet, Healthy Transitions equips women with the necessary knowledge to confidently navigate through an often stressful and confusing time of life.
