In conventional medicine, menopause is defined as a condition in which a woman is in the transition stage of permanent cessation of the ovaries functions in egg production because of less production of estrogen and progesterone. In TCM, menopause is defined as a condition of a natural process of slows down the aging by retaining the body’s kidney energy, to avoid the depletion of the women kidney essence that can lead to death. Statistically, only 10% of Asian women experience noticeable menopausal symptoms, compared with 75% of the women in the United States.

                                    The Diagnosis and tests 

If you are between age of 45-55 with the above symptoms with preceded peri menopause, you doctor may tell you, you arr entering the stage of menopause with no further diagnosis and tests.
Otherwise, blood tests of menopause include
1. Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
The levels of FSH rises dramatically, as a result of no response from ovaries in reaction to the FSH in production of estrogen.

2. Estradiol
As estrogen produced by ovaries has decreased during and following menopause.

3. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroid disease such as hypothyroidism can cause the symptoms of menopause. In a study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN)reported by The medical journal Clinical Endocrinology, researchers found that of the various menopause symptoms evaluated, only fearfulness was associated with having a TSH value above 5.0 or below .5.t....Perhaps most interesting in this study is the fact that almost 10% of women in the 42-52 year old age range had an undiagnosed thyroid condition. This is larger than typical estimates of thyroid disease for women in this age range.
