Results presented at The Endocrine Society’s 95th Annual Meeting in San Francisco display findings that postmenopausal women improve verbal learning and memory after receiving treatment with testosterone gel.

A new study led by the University of Massachusetts Medical School believes that these women are at a greater risk for a higher body mass index (BMI), a larger waist circumference and inflammation, all which increase the chance of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
