Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #35

Posted:

Audience member Tony wants to know how long menopause lasts. Tony’s wife has apparently had menopause since 1999. (Menopause is the permanent cessation of ovarian function, usually happening more or less in midlife, signaling the end of the fertile phase of a woman’s life).

Dr. Oz answers that sometimes menopause can last up to 10 years, so Tony’s wife’s situation is not too uncommon. Dr. Oz explains that when progesterone levels in women drop, hormones responsible for keeping women as calm as possible during pregnancy are depleted, and this void can be responsible for various moods and altered thinking. (Progesterone is a steroid hormone involved in the female menstrual cycle that supports pregnancy and helps women stay calm during the process).

Dr. Oz states that dietary precautions help lessen the effects of menopause. Dr. Oz emphasizes that staying away from saturated fats can especially help.

A woman in the audience asks Dr. Oz why her feet are always hot. The woman is constantly bothered by the hot temperature in her feet, so much so that she can’t sleep with her feet under the covers, and she is afflicted by this even in the cold of winter.

Dr. Oz explains that sometimes our bodies shift too much or not enough blood to our feet and hands, and that our body sometimes has issues regulating this transfer.

Dr. Oz further states that foods can alter the way hormones change the blood vessel sizes, with alcohol especially making this change more difficult.

Dr. Oz recommends that the woman try experimenting with the food she eats, noting any differences that certain foods may cause. Dr. Oz also points out the woman’s tongue ring and comments that such piercing can cause damage to one’s teeth.
