Menopause and Osteoporisis
Helping you manage through life’s changes
Women often experience numerous symptoms in the months or years leading up to menopause. The early stage of menopause is called perimenopause. It is often accompanied by symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Sleep difficulties
- Mood swings
- Irregular periods
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain, slower metabolism
- Thinning hair and dry skin
- Lost breast tissue
At ObGyn of East Brunswick, we provide complete management to eliminate uncomfortable symptoms that may compromise your quality of life. Gynecology has advanced greatly in recent years, giving doctors and patients new and better menopause treatment and care for women approaching menopause or already coping with it.
Treatment for brittle, thinning bones
We can guide you through effective methods for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, a disease that causes loss of bone density. Osteoporosis, which is easily diagnosed, can lead to dangerous falls and broken bones if left untreated. It typically affects bones in the hips, wrists and spine. Medications, eating a healthy diet with sufficient calcium and weight-bearing exercise all help prevent bone loss. These strategies can also strengthen bones.
We have a special high-tech device called a DEXA scanner to measure bone thickness, and we can determine the presence of osteoporosis or its earlier form, osteopenia.
