'Read this book. Its message has never been more important than now as more women grow older and are more in need of rational, biology-based advice and treatment.' - from the foreword by Frederick Naftolin, President of the North American Menopause Society, 1998-9
The announcement of the ending of the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study by the NIH in July 2002 astounded women and health care professionals throughout the world. Putting the WHI data into perspective and presenting guidelines for care of women in the post WHI era, this book focuses on peri- and post-menopausal women. The authors discuss symptom relief through hormonal and non-hormonal medical interventions and include coverage of complementary and alternative choices. The book serves as a guide on testing for post menopausal health problems such as osteoporosis and heart disease and the use of hormonal and nonhormonal medical approaches to maintaining optimum post menopausal health.
