According to a new Mayo Clinic study, menopause symptoms can continue into later life. The study, published in the Journal of the North Logo for Post-Bulletin newspaperAmerican Menopause Society, gathered data from nearly 5,000 women. “The number of women in the study who both reported and sought care for symptom management shines a light on what may be an unmet medical need for women over age 60,” Paru David, M.D., a menopause specialist at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, said in a press release. “With increased awareness, clinicians can identify these distressing symptoms and review treatment options with women, which can lead to improved quality of life.”

Reach: The Rochester Post-Bulletin is a daily newspaper that serves Rochester, Austin and its surrounding cities. The newspaper has a daily circulation of more than 30,000 and has more than 440,00 unique visitors to its website each month.

Context: Menopause symptoms are not just for midlife anymore, according to a new Mayo Clinic study published this month in the Journal of the North American Menopause Society. “The number of women in the study who both reported and sought care for symptom management shines a light on what may be an unmet medical need for women over age 60,” says Paru David, M.D., menopause specialist at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, who is a study author. “With increased awareness, clinicians can identify these distressing symptoms and review treatment options with women, which can lead to improved quality of life.” You can read more about the study on Mayo Clinic News Network.
