As we get older, we seem to dread aging because of the physical changes that happen both inside and outside the body. These changes don't have to remain a mystery, research in women's health helps us understand what is going on in our bodies, and how to deal with the change.

Women's body systems are very different from a men's, women have different risk factors, symptoms, and heath timelines. By knowing the facts, common issues like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks, and cancer don't have to be mysterious, and can often be avoided.


To help women identify and understand these changes, Spectrum Health will be hosting the 10th annual Girl's Night Out.

Women of all ages can talk to doctors and learn about a variety of topics including:

  • Stages of ovarian aging from regular periods to menopause.
  • Symptoms of hormonal change.
  • Healthy lifestyle habits that can make symptoms better.
  • Briefly hormonal treatment options like systemic and vaginal estrogen.
  • Knowledge on how the body will change in order not to suffer from symptoms.

Dr. Diana Bitner, a women's health specialist from Spectrum Health, will be a guest speaker at Girl's Night Out.

The event takes place on November 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Dogwood Center for the Performing Arts in Fremont. Girl's Night Out is free and open to the public.

    In July of 2015, it was discovered that I had type 2 diabetes. By the end of the month, I was given a prescription for Metformin. I stated the ADA diet and followed it completely for several weeks but was unable to get my blood sugar below 140. With no results to how for my hard work, I panicked and called my doctor. His response? Deal with it. I began to feel that something wasn’t right and do my own research. Then I found Rachel’s blog http://getdiabetescured.ga/ . I read it from cover to cover and I started the diet and by the next morning, my blood sugar was 100. Since then, I have a fasting reading between the mid 70s and 80s. My doctor was so surprised at the results that, the next week, he took me off the Metformin. I lost 30 pounds in the first month and lost more than 6 inches off my waist and I’m able to work out twice a day while still having lots of energy. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods.
