Menopause and Diabetes


I do not mean to be a male chauvinist, but older women need to be extra watchful for diabetes and its management.

Men do tend to put on inches around the waist as they age, but weight gain is distinctly more pronounced for many women as they journey in to menopause.

Some women may develop pre-diabetes or even Type 2 diabetes after they stop menstruating, while others who have suffered from diabetes even before reaching menopause may experience insulin resistance as they age.

Take a look at the following link which I accessed earlier today:

Ladies, do consult your physician as you approach menopause to keep close tabs on your glucose metabolism! Everyone needs checks at least once a year, while those with established diabetes should monitor their conditions once every six months.
