Prevention and Wellness

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about prevention and wellness for women.

How do women’s health concerns change as they age?

As women move through the later stages of life, their health concerns also change.

As they get older, women tend to have more health concerns than they did when they were younger. Women change physically, psychologically and emotionally. These changes can affect their daily lifestyle and the way they interact with their environment.

Menopause

Women going through menopause may need to take vitamin supplements, such as calcium, vitamin D and magnesium.

Hormone Therapy is also a treatment many menopausal women are interested in to help balance their hormones and control their emotions.

Post-menopause

As women move into the post-menopausal stages, the risk of cancer and heart disease increases. It is important for women to get screenings for breast and other cancers, as well as heart disease.

Talk to your physician about supplements and screenings that might be right for you as you move through life.
