Osteoporosis and Osteopenia Management

Osteoporosis is a disease with porous bone, in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. Around the world, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men are at risk of an osteoporotic fracture. Women over 60-years- old are at higher risk of osteoporosis than younger people. Medications and lifestyle changes are available to help to manage osteoporosis. These can allow the woman to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Lifestyle Review

Menopause is described as a period of psychological difficulties that changes the lifestyle of women in multiple ways. Menopausal women require more information about their physical and psychosocial needs. Most interventions for menopausal women have focused on educational intervention, physical activity/exercise, healthy diet, stress management, healthy behaviors, preventing certain diseases and osteoporosis. We will empower menopausal women with the knowledge that will guarantee their health during the last third of their life.

Management of Urogenital Problems and Sexual Dysfunction

The menopausal transition is a turning point for many women and is associated with physiological and psychological changes. Urogenital problems are common symptoms of the menopause. Estrogen deficiency initially is related to irregular menstruation and can diminish vaginal lubrication leading to vaginal atrophy. Persistent estrogen loss is associated with changes in the vascular, muscular and urogenital systems, and also alterations in mood, sleep, and cognitive function. These changes influence sexual function both directly and indirectly and cause sexual problems. We understand the importance of recognizing sexual concerns well-timed so as to found appropriate symptomatic medical treatment.
