About this book
Leading researchers and experienced clinicians join forces not only to illuminate today's understanding of the endocrinology of menopause, but also to provide a sound basis for its successful management. These seasoned experts review in detail the cardiovascular, bone, brain, and genitourinary changes that accompany menopause and spell out the risks, benefits, and alternatives of conventional hormone replacement therapy. Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs), androgen replacement, calcium supplementation, and the role of phytoestrogens are also fully reviewed. Menopause: Endocrinology and Management offers practicing physicians a comprehensive understanding of the menopause process, as well as an evidence-based approach to optimizing treatment strategies for the challenging medical problems accompanying this important period in women's lives.
