Talk Overview

Effects of the menopausal transition on the body

The drop in oestrogen during the menopause plays an important role in ageing and it can affect a woman’s wellbeing and appearance in many ways. For example the lack of oestrogen can lead to changes to the cardiovascular system, osteoporosis and subsequent kyphosis, vulvovaginal atrophy and ageing of the skin. We take a closer look at whether our hormones are to blame for weight gain. Are sex hormones capable of changing insulin sensitivity and future risk of Type 2 Diabetes? Does bioidentical HRT help or worsen central abdominal fat gain? We discuss regulated bioidentical treatments and what is available on the NHS.
