Type 1

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest adequate estradiol and progesterone function, with normal testosterone function. Since all three hormones are adequate, Menopause Type® One does not have many of the health risks associated with other Menopause Types. To learn more about Type 1 please read pages 83-87 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 2

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest adequate estradiol and progesterone function, but decreased testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Two may include vulvar disorders, decreased muscle mass, depression, osteoporosis and angina pectoralis (chest pain). To learn more about Type 2 please read pages 87-96 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 3

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest adequate estradiol and progesterone function, but excessive testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Three may include blood sugar and insulin problems (insulin resistance), increased risk of endometrial cancer and heart disease. To learn more about Type 3 please read pages 96-101 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

To the top

Type 4

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest estradiol deficiency with normal testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Four may include osteoporosis and heart disease, as well as memory problems. Since estradiol plays an important role in blood glucose metabolism, there is also increased risk of insulin resistance and blood sugar disorders. Risks associated with insulin resistance include increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer. To learn more about Type 4 please read pages 104-111 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 5

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest decreased estradiol and testosterone function, but adequate progesterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Five may include vulvar disorders, decreased muscle mass, depression, decreased mental function, osteoporosis and heart disease including angina pectoralis (chest pain). Since estradiol plays an important role in blood glucose metabolism, there is also increased risk of insulin resistance and blood sugar disorders. Risks associated with insulin resistance include increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer. To learn more about Type 5 please read pages 111-119 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 6

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest decreased estradiol with excessive testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Six may include heart disease. Since estradiol deficiency and excessive testosterone both play important roles in blood glucose metabolism, there is also increased risk of insulin resistance and blood sugar disorders. Risks associated with insulin resistance include increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer. To learn more about Type 6 please read pages 119-124 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 7

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest progesterone deficiency with adequate estradiol and testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Seven may include osteoporosis, high blood pressure and anxiety disorders. To learn more about Type 7 please read pages 127-133 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 8

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest progesterone and testosterone deficiency with adequate estradiol function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Eight may include decreased muscle mass, osteoporosis, some forms of cancer and heart disease. To learn more about Type 8 please read pages 133-139 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

To the top

Type 9

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest progesterone deficiency with adequate estradiol function and excessive testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Nine may include anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, endometrial hyperplasia or endometrial cancer and heart disease. Since excessive testosterone affects blood glucose metabolism, there is also increased risk of insulin resistance and blood sugar disorders. Risks associated with insulin resistance include increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer. To learn more about Type 9 please read pages 139-147 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Type 10

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest estradiol and progesterone deficiency with adequate testosterone function. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Ten may include osteoporosis, depression, and heart disease.

This Menopause Type® has symptoms that suggest estradiol, progesterone and testosterone deficiency. Health risks associated with Menopause Type® Eleven may include vulvar disorders, decreased muscle mass, depression, osteoporosis and heart disease, including angina pectoralis (chest pain). Since estradiol deficiency can affect blood glucose metabolism, there is also increased risk of insulin resistance and blood sugar disorders. Risks associated with insulin resistance include increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer. To learn more about Type 11 please read pages 155-162 in the book, ”Discover Your Menopause Type” by Joseph J. Collins, ND.

Since estradiol deficiency and excessive testosterone both affect blood glucose metabolism, there is also increased risk of insulin resistance and blood sugar disorders. Risks associated with insulin resistance include increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer.
