About this book

Nutrition and Diet in Menopause is a single comprehensive source that will provide readers with an understanding of menopause.  Holistic in its approach, this volume is divided into five sections covering psychological, endocrine and lifestyle factors, metabolism and physiology, bone and nutrition, cancer and nutrition, cardiovascular factors and dietary supplements in menopause.  In-depth chapters review the potential long term consequences of menopause on the overall health of women, not only at the physical level including hot flushes (flashes) , alterations to the genitourinary system, skin changes, decreased cardiovascular functions, hypertension, headache, back pain, and constipation.  Written by international leaders and trendsetters, Nutrition and Diet in Menopause is essential reading for endocrinologists, cardiologists, nutritionists and all health care professionals who are interested in women’s health. 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides current data-driven resources of the science behind the nutritional strategies in the treatment and prevention of the adverse effects of menopause. … appropriate for any healthcare professional working with this population. … It contains detailed tables and figures as well as key points at the beginning of each chapter and definitions of terms. All chapters also end with a conclusion that highlights major findings. This is a comprehensive resource on medical practice guidelines for helping menopausal women maintain optimal nutrition and health.” (Donna Prost, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2013)
