Which hormones matter most for your health during and after menopause? I’m asked far too often about unique individual hormones. This week it was testosterone and DHEA. Both I wrote about in You Still Got It, Girl! Yet, you don’t want to just look at individual hormones without looking at the whole picture of your signs, symptoms, basically your subjective measures and your objective measures of muscle mass, bone density, strength changes, sleep number (to some extent) and even Heart Rate Variability.
I brought the hormone mistress (she doesn’t know I’m calling her that!) on this episode and we talk about something spontaneously that I hadn’t intended to ask but decided I needed to and that was about her concern for the vast array of information coming from Google and social media influencers who don’t necessarily stay in their scope and who are most concerned with the attention and followers than the accuracy of information.
