Las Vegas, NV – Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., presented her clinical findings with regards to weight gain associated with the onset of menopause at the 2011 American Society of Bariatric Physicians Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 29, 2011.
As a physician who specializes in weight management, Dr. Cederquist is a board certified bariatric physician who uses a personalized, nutrition-oriented approach to help women who have experienced weight gain with menopause lose weight and keep it off. This customized approach allows patients to use diet and lifestyle to treat the symptoms associated with menopausal weight gain.
“I made it my charge to determine why weight gain occurs with the onset of menopause, and what I have discovered can help thousands of women across the country achieve and maintain a healthy weight, despite the hormonal changes they are going through,” says Dr. Caroline Cederquist.
One of the topics she discussed in her presentation at the ASBP conference included a thorough discussion on the metabolic changes that occur within the body during the onset of menopause. The average women gains approximately 30 pounds during the pre- and post-menopausal time frame. She discussed how it becomes extremely easy to gain weight, and very difficult to lose weight when these specific metabolic changes occur due to hormonal fluctuations. “But this changed metabolism is completely treatable with the right nutritional parameters and lifestyle changes,” encourages Dr. Cederquist.
With a science-based approach utilizing the most current research in metabolic science, Dr. Cederquist has helped thousands of women achieve and maintain a healthy weight even with the onset of menopause.
