Fifty doesn’t have to be a sign of life gone by; it can be the start of a golden age, a wonderful season of life for many women. You may be celebrating a new promotion at work or taking that cruise you’ve always dreamed of. You may be watching your daughter walk down the aisle. Turning fifty may mean holding your newest grandchild and just listening to that laugh!
You want to be there for the moments that mean the most. We encourage every woman to think more about their health as they turn fifty years old. With the right planning and good healthy conversations with your doctor, your fifties can be a beautiful experience.
So, what questions should you ask your doctor at fifty? Here are important questions to consider:
- How do I mention a healthy body weight at my age? Many women gain an average of twelve pounds during their fifties, which can lead to serious health complications in the future. Some women also struggle with losing weight due to stress, hormone imbalances, and misconceptions about diet.
- When should I have my next mammogram? One out of every eight women will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime. (Breastcancer.org) Early detection is crucial in saving the lives of countless women.
- What are diet changes I need to make to live a healthy and vibrant life into my 60’s and even 70’s? As we age, our dietary needs can change. Your doctor can help you learn what specific nutrients your body needs the most at this time in your life.
- How do I regain mental clarity, alleviate depression and anxiety, maintain a healthy metabolism, and feel in control of my energy, emotions, and body? You may be experiencing the symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Many of our patients express the same sentiments and hope for feeling more like they used to feel.
