Lifestyle Changes, Plus Ongoing Help From Physicians, Improves Health Of Menopausal Women

February 13, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A pilot project involving 83 menopausal women found that five consultative doctor visits over six months, combined with health risk assessment, exercise, and other factors, helped the women fight obesity and reduce hot flashes. At the end of the U.S. project, the participants, aged 35 to 55, better understood their health risks and set and achieved health goals. They trimmed their waistlines by an average of 1.5 inches and lowered their diastolic blood pressure by two points; hot flashes and other menopause symptoms – energy, libido, mood, vaginal dryness, etc. – had all improved significantly. All of the visits to their healthcare provider were reimbursed by insurance.
