Yes : Yes (and no) because we do not yet have perfect tests. Here are is a link about to multiple resources about menopause timing (http://bitly.Com/gkpe8x). We think that a hormone called amh (anti-mullerian hormone) may be useful to predict menopause. Here is a link to my blog entry on amh (http://www.Dropsahl.Com/infertility/testing/anti-mullerian-hormone-amh/). Amh is a hormone produced by the growing follicles in the ovaries. The small antral follicles are constantly growing and you use up about 500-100 eggs each month. As you get older and the number of eggs goes down, so does the number of growing follicles (cysts containing an egg). The few growing follicles the lower the amh level. You blood level does not vary much from day to day, so your doctor could get that value (and perhaps an fsh) and give you some idea of how close you are. Let me comment on a couple of issues. First, your mother's age at menopause matters if she went through menopause naturally but not if the menopause was from surgery. Also, the mid-40's is not abnormal though a bit early as the average age is 51 years. Second, as you will learn from reading some of the links i provided, there is considerable variation in timing. Next. Let me say that the symptoms of menopause vary as well. Some women suffer from many effects of losing the estrogen hormone: hot flushes, mood changes etc. You are not necessarily doomed to have the same reaction or even the same symptoms. I hope this information helps. Best wishes and please do not worry too much about menopause which is normal and usually not a horrible experience. ...Read more

Overeating calories?: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

How can I shed about 40 to 50 pounds this year of 2016? I weigh approximately 256 to 262 any given day and I am a 47 year old male with light activity

That can be done: Losing 1 pound each week is considered easily done, in the big picture of weight loss desires. One has to burn calories by any means possible (keep moving, keep moving, keep moving). One cannot eat more calories than needed, but instead must eat less calories than needed... which will make the body start using up that 100 pounds of stored fuel. It is a simple concept, but takes will-power. ...Read more

If you're not in one of those categories, you can go for exercise to your heart's content (and you SHOULD!). Live healthy! ...Read more
