Debunking the myths that still abound about the menopause, the authors of this book provide up-to-date information on some of the most important topics in women's health today. The book looks at such topics as hormone replacement therapy - the benefits and the faults - PMS, osteoporosis, heart disease, sexual difficulties, hot flushes, and other mid-life health hazards and how to avoid them.

With the help of medical writer Jacobowitz, Utian, director of the Cleveland Menopause Clinic, offers clear explanations of what happens to the body during menopause and why. The authors discuss finding the right doctor and the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy, and they offer advice concerning diet, lifestyle, and exercise, as well as sexuality and aging. Enlivened by stories of patients treated by Utian, the book is easy to read and understand. There have been many books on the subject of menopause in the last few years (including Melvin Frisch's Staying Cool Through Menopause and Linda Ojeda's Menopause Without Medicine , both reviewed in LJ 9/15/89), but this clear text will be a welcome addition to public library consumer health collections.
