Women's Health Q&A

Am I doing enough to promote good health?

Even the best routine medical care can neglect important aspects of your health and wellness that need to be evaluated. That’s why Optimal Health Miami provides resources to optimize your well-being. This multi-stage process begins with a comprehensive women’s health evaluation.

What’s included in a women’s health evaluation?

Optimal Health Miami takes a whole-woman approach to wellness, assessing all factors that affect your health through a series of tests to understand your internal makeup. The team then uses this information to customize a treatment plan to promote your long-term health.

The women’s health assessments at Optimal Health Miami include the measurement of : 

Hormones

Blood and urine tests help to evaluate your levels of all major hormones. This includes estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, adrenal, and testosterone.

Vitamins, minerals, and toxins

Optimal Health Miami stresses the importance of evaluating your levels of major vitamins and 20 essential minerals, including calcium (bone health), iron (red blood cells), and iodine (thyroid health). They also assess your cumulative exposure to mercury, lead, and other toxic metals.

Heart health

Optimal Health Miami offers a Cardio IQ® exam, an in-depth assessment of your overall cardiac health. The exam measures your risk for heart disease and high cholesterol, so you can take steps early to promote good heart health.

Body composition

A dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry Whole Body DEXA scanner provides an in-depth assessment of your lean body mass. The technology shows you where fat and muscle are distributed and the various areas of your body that need improvement.

Adrenal fatigue

Sometimes low energy is more than a symptom of a poor night’s sleep. Optimal Health Miami offers a saliva test to look for signs of adrenal fatigue. 

Optimal Health Miami also offers tests for food allergies that may be causing your health issues. 

What are my options for women’s health treatments?

Optimal Health Miami addresses any health issue they find during your evaluation. As a board-certified urologist, Dr. Gittelman also provides treatments of urinary issues, such as incontinence, that become more common after childbirth and during menopause.

Declines in sexual performance, arousal, and libido can occur in women due to age-related changes in hormone levels. If this is happening to you, Dr. Gittelman develops an individualized treatment program to restore your lost sexual performance and vitality. Such programs typically include a combination of nutritional guidance, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), and counseling.
