Discusses Women's Health

I rarely write website articles on prenatal issues, but I thought that the fish debate was one that would be interesting, not just to my patients who are considering getting or are already pregnant, but also to their mothers, mother-in-laws and the rest of the family and friends who eagerly offer advice as soon as…

This week passed quickly and before I knew it my Friday website was due. As I scanned the various medical journals, I found an interesting article in the Journal of the North American Menopause Society. The long but very comprehensive title of the article is “Calcium/vitamin D supplementation, serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D concentrations, and cholesterol…

As physicians who treat women over 40, we’ve always assumed that estrogen is great for our bones. Studies have shown that there is rapid bone loss (as much as 10% in the first three years) after menopause! And even if estrogen is given initially, once it is discontinued, rapid bone loss occurs, again as much…

Last Friday, I delivered one of the keynote addresses for the annual conference of the Academy of Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine in Las Vegas. It was a huge conference and I was somewhat overwhelmed by the 3500 medical personnel who attended. The topic of anti-aging is certainly one of major concern to medical practitioners and…

We all want to believe in vitamins, especially antioxidants, hoping that they will help us live longer, prevent chronic illness, and like Popeye’s spinach, make us strong.

(And, of course, there are those wonderful sales!). But if you happen to be glancing at this website, I want to…

The CDC, most medical journals, and mainstream media have been covering the disastrous infections caused by the contamination of the steroid that was distributed by a compounding pharmacy in New England. Three potentially contaminated lots of this steroid were used by physicians in epidurals, and joint injections in over 14,000 persons. They have, so far,…

It’s amazing to realize that it was just 10 years ago that the Women’s Health Initiative results were released with extraordinary media brouhaha, causing as many as 70% of women who were taking menopausal hormone therapy (usually Prempro) to cease and desist…and in many instances flush, flash and lose sleep. But with time, additional studies…

I thought I would start the New Year with a somewhat positive article that came out in the journal published by the North American Menopause Society. The journals’ name is appropriately, “Menopause”. Its cover is bright red…  I am not sure if this is meant to make it stand out or if the color represents…

postmenopausal women who had taken an oral bisphosphonates longer than one year had a 59% reduced risk of colorectal cancer
