Endocrine department runs Menopause clinic in association with Obstetrics & Gynecology department CMC Vellore. The clinic was started in 2002 to streamline the management of clinical issues associated with post menopausal state.
Menopause is the time in a women’s life when her menstrual function ceases. This usually happens around age 45-55. However her hormonal functions start declining a good ten years before this event. These phases in her life are referred to as pre menopause and peri menopausal years. These declining hormonal levels bring about many changes to the body, mind and sense of well being. Several life style diseases such as hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, metabolic syndrome, depression also tend to manifest on women of this age group.
