Night Sweats, Hot Flashes … and Weight Gain?

But are those extra pounds added during menopause inevitable? We asked Kathryn Macaulay, MD , an obstetrician and gynecologist with UC San Diego Health and professor of reproductive medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine, for clarification and to shed some light on what (and why) women should be eating to stay healthy through menopause and beyond. Plus, we offer up a few nutritious recipes for inspiration.

Question : Weight gain is often associated with menopause. Are there certain foods women experiencing menopause should avoid or eat more?

Answer : Weight gain is a common concern for women during the menopause transition. The average weight gain for a woman over this transition is approximately five pounds and is more likely related to aging and changes in lifestyle than to specific menopausal hormone changes. However, several studies have suggested that menopause is associated with changes in body composition and fat distribution, with menopausal women having a greater tendency to accumulate fat centrally, in the abdominal area. Also, with aging there is a decline in lean body mass.

Whats a good vitamin for women over 50?

I want a multi vitamin that you can take one or two tabs a day and easily dissolved with no iron for women or seniors over 50. I know I can't get everything I need with just one or two but at least one that comes close.



go to GNC and inquire

They have good multi vitamins on

there is a vitamin tablet actually called 50+

Taking vitamins meant for over 50?

I bought some multi-vitamins, but didn't realise they are designed for women over 50. I am a female age 19, should I chuck them and buy appropriate ones or should they be OK?

They will not hurt you. That just means certain vitamins are in different dose proportions that older females need. For example, post-menopausal women do not need iron as do pre-menopausal women. So if you keep them you may want to buy some iron tablets
