Most females have started to experience the “change-of-life” at age 48, but hormonal decline starts years earlier for many women. Symptoms can be quite subtle at the onset of menopause, and they are often ascribed to “having a bad day,” stress, fatigue, or just “normal aging.” However mild they might be at first, they should never be ignored because they are red flags for the slippery slope that leads to serious deterioration of both brain and body—and a precipitous decline in the overall quality of life.
Women and men should heed the early warning signs of menopause: fatigue, loss of sex drive, and weight gain; intermediate symptoms: irregular menstruation, hot flashes, cold hands/feet, night sweats, and bloating/swelling; and later-stage conditions: muscle loss, arthritis, panic attacks, memory loss, cognitive decline, depression, and autoimmune disease.
Early recognition of symptoms at any stage leads to the simplest and most effective interventions, improving the prospects for total health.
For the most comprehensive assessment of menopause, and to avoid the madness and relationship damage it causes, make the appointment that will change your life.
