The one-woman backbone of menopause care in Ireland' IRISH INDEPENDENT
Suddenly feeling hot? Tired? Irritable? Not yourself?
Having our bodies and minds change rapidly as we approach mid-life can be bewildering and even upsetting. It may be hard to get a handle on what's happening and what we can do about it.
The Menopause is the handbook of everything you need to know from Ireland's leading menopause expert, Dr Deirdre Lundy. Drawing on decades of experience and on the most up-to-date research Dr Lundy . . .
-Explains what's going on in your body - the key hormones that run your life, how they are changing and the impact of that
-Helps you figure out where you are on the menopause spectrum and empowers you to have informed conversations with your doctor
-Sets out approaches to dealing with symptoms - from nutrition, exercise, counselling and medication, to using hormone replacement therapies (HRT)
-Explores every aspect of HRT - debunking the myths and explaining why it is helpful for many women
-Addresses key areas of concern - from early onset menopause, to preserving vaginal, heart, breast and bone health, to managing your menopause if you have pre-existing health challenges
Dr Lundy came to public prominence during a remarkable ten-day discussion of the menopause on RTÉ Radio 1's Liveline. Now, as leader of Ireland's first dedicated menopause clinic, she continues her passionate advocacy for Irish women. The Menopause is her essential guide to having the best menopause you can and being as healthy and energized as possible in your middle years and beyond.
