#223 What Women need to know about the Menopause with Dr Louise Newson

22 Nov 2023

Why do women struggle with weight during and after the menopause? This is the key question I’m putting to Dr Louise Newson on todays podcast as it’s the most commonly asked question that I get from Doctor’s Kitchen followers as well as from patients during my medical career.

She is the perfect person to be discussing this topic as Dr Louise Newson is one of the UK’s leading medical experts on the menopause and has championed women’s health for years. I also discuss with Dr Louise the 3 key things that all women should understand about the menopause.

Having worked as a GP as well as opening the Newson Health menopause clinic, she has built a wealth of knowledge from first-hand experience of treating perimenopausal and menopausal women. And she’s also written “The Definitive Guide to the Perimenopause and Menopause” which lays out everything women need to know to understand and reclaim their power during this stage. Her book covers:

  • The key facts about hormones
  • An essential guide to HRT
  • Navigating an early menopause
  • Exercising and Eating during the menopause
  • Taking care of your mental health

We also discuss the unlikely way in which Louise found out about her own menopause, which just goes to show how unaware we could all be about these symptoms!
