Menopause related conditions
Women who are looking for treatment for their menopause should primarily seek advice from Consultant Gynaecologists who specialise in Endocrinology (hormones). These specialists are sometimes called Gynaecological Endocrinologists. The drop in oestrogen levels is largely responsible for the weakening of bones and increased risk of fractures (osteoporosis). However, specialist advise can also be sought from a Consultant Rheumatologist with experience in the field of bone health and DEXA.
Your doctor may recommend a DEXA scan (also known as DXA or dual energy X-ray absorptiometry). Some DEXA scanners have more advanced diagnostic features, which allow a fully comprehensive analysis of your health. As well as giving you your true bone age, DEXA scanners with ‘Advanced Body Composition’ capabilities will show how much fat you are carrying in your middle area. Too much fat here puts you at a higher risk for diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Nutrition for menopause
A fully integrated menopause service should be offered – and this could include a consultation with a clinical nutritionist. Miss Stephanie Moore, a Clinical Nutritionist and Health Coach is qualified in both psychotherapy and nutritional medicine and can give advice in what is best to eat during menopause to keep an optimal weight and to balance hormones. We also offer consultations with Mr Rick Miller, a clinical dietitian and an expert in sports nutrition.
Emotional issues associated with menopause
For psychotherapy or psychiatry there are specialists such as Dr Dmitri Popelyuk who can be highly appropriate, specialising in rehabilitation psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosexual medicine.
