Return to Functional Tests

Post Menopause Health Panel

Menopause is neither a disease nor an illness; it is a natural and usually gradual change in glandular function. This transition produces a variety of bodily manifestations and symptoms that are caused by changes in production of hormones and the timing of their release.

Various body parts undergo change and can produce one or more of the following symptoms:

• Bleeding irregularities
• Hot flashes / sweats
• Vaginal Dryness
• Changes in sex drive

Nervous System:
• Insomnia
• Mood Changes
• Nervousness, irritability   
• Depression

Metabolic Changes:
• Osteoporosis
• Altered fat and carbohydrate metabolism
• Skin aging / cosmetic changes
• Atherosclerosis

By treating and correcting symptoms using natural hormones with testing for hormone levels before and after treatment, one can then:

• Customize natural hormone dosing to meet individual needs.
• Optimize hormone levels for minimum dose to relieve symptoms.
• Achieve appropriate and compatible physiologic levels of several hormones.
• Increase sense of “well being” by removing underlying hormone deficits and imbalances.
