      If you have any existing problem such as thyroid issues, this can contribute to the menopause symptoms and vice versa. So do let the doctor know that you have menopausal developments breaking through. In case your thyroid medication needs reviewed. Weight issues are common due to the hormonal shift anyway. The digestive system becomes more sluggish and carb metabolism slows down, so try to drink more plain water to nourish and hydrate the body and I suggest that you eat more protein foods and less carbs, with plenty of fruit and veg. Molkosan can be helpful to kick start your day and reduce bloating if this is bothersome. You can look up GI Diet to help or someone like a Nutritional advisor or therapist can be helpful.

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
