Weight Gain During Menopause: Dr. Cederquist Explains Why


Menopause is something that women will deal with at some point in their life, and the effects it can have on your body can be pretty hard to deal with for many women.

This is especially true when women start to gain an extraordinary amount of weight, in what feels like a little amount of time.

In this exclusive video, BistroMD's founding physician, Dr. Caroline J. Cederquist, explains why women gain weight during menopause, and why it isn't their fault.
