Women’s Health- It’s All Connected

Dr Kathleen specializes in women’s health- and that doesn’t mean only gynecological issues! “ Being a woman today means that we are more than just our female body parts. We are mothers, partners, home-keepers, business owners and more. The unique lives of women shapes their health journey and approaching their health issues needs to take this into account. What this means is that the cause of a woman’s elevated cholesterol or blood pressure can be very different to that of a man. And treating hypothyroidism in a woman means you needs to also treat her female hormones in order to achieve optimal balance.   We are complex and unique- and our healthcare should reflect that!’
