Understanding role of nutrition in women's health

13 Oct 2022
GP Clinical 1 Theatre

Many illnesses and long-term conditions affect more women than men, such as migraine, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, coeliac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, and long Covid. Onset of these conditions is often in the years between puberty and menopause. This is when women have periods and may also experience pregnancy and breastfeeding. Good nutrition is vital at all stages of life and is especially important for women who may need to be able to nourish their offspring as well as themselves. Following the completion of a nutritional medicine MSc, Lisa Jamieson, a pharmacist with over 25 years’ experience and personal experience of managing several long-term conditions with a nutritional approach, is now on a mission to try to educate others about how we can use nutrition to improve health outcomes and reduce the need for medication.

  • - Nutritional considerations for menstruation, pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • - How a focus on optimising nutritional intake can prevent and treat illness, and support deprescribing
  • - Potential consequences of a targeted nutritional approach on health outcomes and quality of life
