Menopause and Diabetes
If you have diabetes and are currently going through menopause, you may not be aware of the effect these two things have on each other. In some cases, women experience serious medical issues as a result of being diabetic while going through menopause.
In some cases, complications may arise due to the changes in hormone levels that occur during menopause. Changes in hormonal levels can make it difficult for the body to absorb insulin. This makes it much more difficult to maintain proper blood sugar level.
While these complications can be difficult to deal with, they can be managed by seeking help from a professional medical provider. If you are going through menopause and need medical assistance to help manage medical complications that may arise, contact us to schedule a consultation with obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Mary Geldernick.
