What are some “typical” Menopause symptoms? The most common symptom experienced by 80 percent of women during menopause are hot flashes (daytime) or night sweats. Some women may also experience muscle and joint pain (arthralgia), mood swings, “brain fog,” loss of libido and weight gain (to name a few). Many women begin to develop insulin resistance and diabetes, osteoporosis and arthritis; all caused by hormonal deficiencies. Intimacy can become painful due to vaginal dryness. How is it clinically proven that I am in Menopause? We treat the WHOLE patient as every patient is different and has different needs. Among other tests, we order a full thyroid and hormone panel INCLUDING testosterone, estradiol and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month

Every woman’s journey to motherhood is different, but one of the first decisions a new mom makes is how to feed her child. When you choose to breastfeed, you make an investment in your baby’s future. Breastfeeding allows you to make the food that is perfect for your baby. Your milk gives your baby the healthy start that will last a lifetime. There are many benefits to breastfeeding: Mothers that breastfeed their children have a better weight status than moms that use artificial baby milk. They also have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, breast and ovarian cancer, and postpartum depression. Children that are breastfed typically score higher on IQ tests and are sick less often. They also have a lower risk for developing respiratory and gastrointestinal infections, asthma, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Mothers of breastfed babies enjoy a special bond through the skin-to-skin contact that breastfeeding involves. A breastfeeding family can save approximately $1,500 per year on formula costs ...
