Abstract

For women, menopause is not an option. There is a finite end to our reproductive life, but modern women live as much as one third of their lives past menopause. Women with diabetes are no exception, but they do have their own special concerns. Armed with current up to date medical knowledge, women with type 1 diabetes (T1D) or type 2 diabetes (T2D) can make informed decisions about how they approach menopause, its symptoms, and body changes.
