Some tips on menopause
« on: June 14, 2007, 09:24:36 PM »

Menopause is the absence of menses for at least six months or a Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) level of 35 IU/ml or above. The average age of menopause for Filipinos is 49, though perimenopause starts as early as 10 years before the actual menopause. Approaching this golden period, here are a dozen tips from a gynecologist’s point of view on how to maintain your health and sanity:

• Visit a gynecologist annually on your birthday. Get tested for CBC, urinalysis, blood chemistry panel 23, chest x-ray, treadmill test, transvaginal ultrasound, and Pap smear, if not hysterectomized; bilateral mammography and fecal occult blood for colon cancer screening.

• If you started sex by 18 years old and have had five sexual partners or have had any partner who was promiscuous, have an HPV (human papillomavirus) test aside from a Pap smear. The HPV test is far more accurate than a Pap Smear, which can miss cervical cancer  up to 50 percent of cases. This is a more direct test as it detects presence or absence of  virus that causes cervical cancer. If HPV test is negative, do a Pap Smear test once in three years. However, if  test is  positive, the risk of acquiring cervical cancer increases by a hundredfold.

• Have a bone densitometry once in three years to detect osteoporosis. Couple that with bone turnover markers such as a 2,3. Dpd-Pyrilinks or Urinary Collagen Ntx test. This is done by submitting your first or second urine in the morning  to detect how much bone is lost every day. Should you be given drugs for osteoporosis, these bone turnover tests will also be your basis to tell if the drug taken works or not within eight weeks from start of therapy.

• Go for hormone replacement therapy. If you are having hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, fatigue, memory loss, low libido, and skin or vaginal dryness, you may need hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

• You may opt to take either synthetic or natural hormone replacement therapy. Some women are afraid to use HRT because of results of WHI trial showing increased risk for breast cancer, coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, venous thromboembolism, and pulmonary embolism (you must realize that this study is extremely flawed). The average age of  women included in this study is 65 years old, at which period they are more prone to breast cancer and their arteries are riddled with arteriosclerosis, making them more prone to strokes and heart attacks. However, these results are not necessarily true for women who recently went into menopause.

The natural bioidentical hormones are plant-based which don’t necessarily carry the same risk. You can be as energetic and as vibrant as you were in your teens with hormone replacement therapy.

 If you have osteopenia or osteoporosis, with all  symptoms stated in an aforementioned tip, your best bet for correction is hormone replacement therapy. However, if you just have osteopenia or osteoporosis without all the symptoms stated,  take an anti-bone resorption drug. For osteopenia, the only FDA-approved drug is Raloxifene. For osteoporosis, Raloxifene is the ideal drug for women  younger than 65 years old. If over 65 years old, you may use Fosamax daily, Fosavance once weekly, Actonel once weekly or Bonviva once monthly. These medicines must be prescribed by your doctor before taken.

The advantage of Raloxifene is that it decreases breast cancer risk by 44 percent, equivalent to the effect of Tamoxifen but at the same time may increase the risk of fatal strokes. It is, therefore, the drug recommended to women who need to be treated for osteoporosis with a family history of breast cancer or are strongly fearful of acquiring breast cancer.

• Be sure you are taking 1,500 mgs. of calcium every day. You normally obtain about 300-400 mgs. from your diet so a tablet of calcium twice a day should do the trick. Your calcium should have half the amount of magnesium as your calcium to make a 2:1 ratio as well as some vitamin D. Your calcium absorption depends on what it is chelated to. You absorb 20 percent calcium from calcium carbonate, a little more with calcium gluconate, and about 60 percent absorption with calcium citrate, so look for a calcium citrate supplement.

• Exercise. No matter how much calcium you ingest, if you don’t exercise against gravity, you can’t force your bones to deposit calcium. So, at least do brisk walking two to three times  your normal pace at a minimum of 40 minutes a day. Biking and swimming don’t count in helping your bones deposit calcium. Ballroom dancing and tai-chi help in balance training, such that if you drop, you can catch your fall and prevent a fracture.

• See a doctor. Remember, any vaginal bleeding after menopause is abnormal. So be sure to see a doctor to check out the cause of  the problem.

• Live life. Menopause is a liberating point in  life, free from pregnancy, and many times released from raising kids, who by now have grown independent. It is a period to fulfill yourself, reassess what you have accomplished. Deepen your relationship with God,  spouse and/or significant other. Have a great moment enriching your life!

Are there tips for men who may undergo menopause?
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."

5 Tips in Dealing With Andropause

By Nelson Berry
Expert Author Nelson Berry

Andropause is actually not a taboo, but it is hardly spoken by many simply because it is not recognized by the World Health Organization as a medical term. But it is very real, and a lot of men go through it once they get older.

What is andropause?

Andropause is very similar to menopause. The difference is it is experienced by men. It occurs when men are already around 40 to 55 years old. One of the biggest reasons why it is not immediately diagnosed is its physical and mental symptoms can be associated to other illnesses. Women, on the other hand, start to stop menstruating.

Men, however, are likely undergoing andropause if they experience a lack of sexual drive, depression, irritability, weight gain, or energy loss. These are usually caused by the decrease in production of testosterone.

What should you do?

Andropause can be emotionally traumatic for a male person, who may be used to being dominant and authoritative. He may feel he is not fully equipped to please his partner, or it reminds him that he is definitely getting older.

Know, though, that you do not really have to suffer if you are going through andropause. There are several ways on how to cope with it:

Keep on exercising and maintain a good diet. As you grow older, the more you should pay close attention to your health. You need to exercise to maintain your metabolic rate and burn those excessive calories. Exercising also helps release endorphins, which effectively manage your moods, reducing your depressive or irritable state. You also need to eat well, choosing those that can complement your healthy lifestyle.

Reduce your level of stress. Stress only aggravates the hormonal imbalance. Worse, it weakens your immune system you become more prone to several types of illnesses. When you're old, your immunity naturally goes down. When you hit 40, it's time to think about your retirement. Plan it very well. Start saving more or increasing your contribution to your pension plan. Then reduce the amount of time you spend on working.

Sleep well. An average adult person should sleep between 6 and 8 hours a day. Studies show that doing so will help you lose weight. You also need that to retain the normal body functions and keep your motor and mental skills in good shape.

Engage in activities that are fun and engaging. There are a number of reasons for this. First you want to shift your attention to something else. Instead of focusing more on what you cannot do, you think more on those that you can. Fun activities can also greatly reduce the feeling of depression and irritability. You will even discover that you have a sudden burst of energy.

Embrace old age. The more you fight it, the more you'll be conscious about yourself. Andropause is normal. It just needs to be accepted.

Listening to subliminal messages that talks about self-acceptance or gaining wisdom can help you a great deal in coping with andropause more effectively.
