Managing menopause is a challenge, as it involves much more than addressing the controversial management issues of the short- and long-term consequences of the menopause symptom complex syndrome. The menopause practitioner has to take the role of a general practitioner and stay updated on the diagnosis and management of non-communicable diseases and geriatric problems, and also be sensitive to the availability of resources and social issues.
Every clinician wishes to deliver the best to the patient. Guidelines are quick, standardized, simple reference resources to stay updated on unfamiliar territories.
My hope and wish is that this issue of JMH with guidelines on menopause and post-menopausal osteoporosis, along with commentaries from the world authorities, will assist the clinician in giving a better quality of life to women in midlife and beyond. The strength of these guidelines are that they are based on published and unpublished Indian data and tailored to meet the need of the diverse Indian population.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate as a guest editor and my thanks also go out to Zydus Nutriva and Sonia Malik in making this issue a reality.
