"I want to be the doctor going to the doctor with you," Dr. Goldberg tells readers as she opens this user-friendly handbook to women's health. Goldberg, who runs NYU's Women's Heart Program and other cardiac projects, knows women's bodies aren't just small versions of men's. Women have different medical needs and different ways of relating to treatment, so they may not be getting the care they need. First, though, women have to get in the habit of telling their doctors everythingwhat symptoms they have, what medicines and supplements they're usingwithout deciding in advance what their doctors need to know. Goldberg explores the range of medical problems that might bring a middle-aged woman to the doctor's office, from hormonal imbalances to heart disease. She explains what the doctor may ask you and why, as well as the benefits and risks of various treatments. She wisely includes discussions of procedures like chemical peels, Botox and breast implants, since women often imagine they don't need to advise their regular doctors about such "cosmetic" interventions. Happily, the closing section on healthy lifestyles, mostly diet and exercise advice, is geared to realistic expectations. By offering solid, up-to-date medical information in a comforting, woman-to-woman tone of voice, Goldberg's got just what the patient ordered." - Publisher's Weekly (starred review) If you're a woman over thirty-five you probably have a lot of stress in your lifemaybe even more than you realize. You may have a demanding job, family obligations, financial pressures, or a combination of all three. You're most likely low on energy, gaining weight, and not sleeping as well as you once did. The fact is: your body is changing. You see and feel it happening, but you don't know anymore what is normal and what is not. Your concern over your health is creating stress all by itself. And if you're like most women, you don't think your health care providers are giving you the help you need. In fact, traditional doctors may not even be aware of many diseases that present special problems in women. Dr. Nieca Goldberg knows what you're going through, because she has seen women dealing with these stressful bodily changes in her practice every dayand has experienced them firsthand.
