Abstract

Women in the Western world may expect to spend a significant portion of their lives in postmenopause. After menopause, women are at increasing risk for several conditions associated with aging that may or may not be related to declining hormone levels. Caring for women seeking advice and treatment for menopausal concerns presents a golden opportunity to not only identify individuals at risk for early intervention but also to address prevention and screening strategies important to sustaining health.
