Your Health Matters- Menopause
In this three-minute "Your Health Matters" segment from FOX 45 Morning News, reporter Patrice Harris interviews Dr. Valerie Omicioli, a gynecologist and certified menopause practitioner at the University of Maryland Medical Center. During the interview, Dr. Omicioli addresses the topic of menopause and explains some of the treatment options available to help relieve the symptoms associated with this portion of a woman's life.
Hormone replacement therapy and its associated risks are also discussed during the interview; however, Dr. Omicioli stresses that this type of treatment should be discussed on an individual basis and that, most of the time, women can manage their menopause symptoms through different lifestyle modifications.
