Understand about Menopause and how WINGS ENDOSCOPY help you in Menopause phase


MENOPAUSE


Menopause is the time in a women’s life when her menstrual function ceases. This usually happens around age 45-55. However her hormonal functions start declining a good ten years before this event. These phases in her life are referred to as pre menopause and peri menopausal years. These declining hormonal levels bring about many changes to the body, mind and sense of well being. Several life style diseases such as hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, metabolic syndrome, depression also tend to manifest on women of this age group.

Menopause, is not a disease or an illness. It is a transition between two phases of a woman's life.

Many women experience a variety of symptoms as a result of the hormonal changes associated with the transition through menopause. Around the time of menopause, women often lose bone density and their blood cholesterol levels may worsen.

Menopause occurs due to a complex series of hormonal changes. Associated with the menopause is a decline in the number of functioning eggs within the ovaries.



• Normally, FSH (a reproductive hormone), is the substance responsible for the growth of eggs during the first half of a woman's menstrual cycle. As menopause approaches, the remaining eggs become more resistant to FSH, and the ovaries dramatically reduce their production of estrogen.

• Estrogen affects many parts of the body, including the blood vessels, heart, bone, breasts, uterus, urinary system, skin, and brain. Loss of estrogen is believed to be the cause of many of the symptoms associated with menopause. At the time of menopause, the ovaries also decrease their production of testosterone-a hormone involved in the libido, or sexual drive.

Hot flashes:
Hot flashes are the most common symptom of menopause. According to some studies, hot flashes occur in as many as 75% of perimenopausal women. Hot flash symptoms vary among women. Commonly, the hot flash is a feeling of warmth that spreads over the body, lasting from around 30 seconds to a few minutes. Flushed (reddened) skin, palpitations (feeling a strong heartbeat), and sweating often accompany hot flashes. Hot flashes often increase skin temperature and pulse, and they can cause insomnia, or sleeplessness. Hot flashes usually last 2-3 years, but many women can experience them for up to 5 years. An even smaller percentage may have them for more than 15 years.

Urinary incontinence and burning on urination

Vaginal changes:
Because estrogen affects the vaginal lining, peri menopausal women may also have pain during intercourse and may note a change in vaginal discharge.

Breast changes: Menopause may cause changes in the shape of the breasts.

Thinning of the skin

Bone loss:
Rapid bone loss is common during the perimenopausal years. Most women reach their peak bone density when aged 25-30 years. After that, bone loss averages 0.13% per year. During perimenopause, bone loss accelerates to about a 3% loss per year. Later, it drops off to about a 2% loss per year. No pain is usually associated with bone loss. However, bone loss can cause osteoporosis, a condition that increases the risk of bone fractures. These fractures can be intensely painful and can interfere with daily life. They also can increase the risk of death.

Cholesterol:
Cholesterol profiles also change significantly at the time of menopause. Total cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels increase. Increased LDL cholesterol is associated with an increased risk of heart disease.

Heart disease risk increases after menopause, although it is unclear exactly how much is due to aging and how much is caused by the hormonal changes that occur at the time of menopause. Women who undergo premature menopause or have their ovaries removed surgically at an early age are at an increased risk of heart disease.

Weight gain:
A three year study of healthy women nearing menopause found an average gain of five pounds during the three years. Hormonal changes and aging are both possible factors in this weight gain.


Some of the changes in menopause can be relieved by giving replacement estrogen in place of the hormone that is no longer made by the body. The treatment of menopause is not limited to HRT and requires other modalities like treating the symptoms, correcting the risk factors, as well as taking care of the patient psychologically.

Nutritional Therapy is an important aspect of menopausal treatment, as are lifestyle changes.

The doctors at Ageless Medica try to incorporate all the above into their treatments, so that the patient is comfortable with this change.
