Learn how to address Cold Extremities During Menopause

Cold Extremities During Menopause

Cold extremities during menopause is most often related to vasomotor instability that occurs in menopause. As such, low estrogen is the most common cause for cold extremities during menopause, then EstroMend™ may be the best choice. However, cold extremities during menopause may also be due to low testosterone, in which case TestoGain™ may be the better choice. 

Cold extremities during menopause may also be due to low thyroid function, even if thyroid replacement therapy is being taken because thyroid function is a complex process. Use the Hypothyroid Risk Questionnaire to determine risk of hypothyroidism. If the cold extremities are due to low thyroid function, then consider ThyroMend™.

Other Considerations
Even though cold extremities with menopause may simply be due to changes in hormones that can be addressed with one or more of the Hormone Specific™ Formulations, it is important to discuss these symptoms with a healthcare professional to make sure that there is not a more serious medical condition that needs to be addressed.
If there are other symptoms that may be due to menopause changes, consider using the Menopause Type® Questionnaire to do a more comprehensive analysis of which hormone problems may be involved.
