E149.5Sexual problems are common among menopausal women, but too rarely discussed (13 minutes)

Show more information

GPs have a key role in initiating discussions about sex and sexual difficulties with our patients, but these discussions can be so hard and yet they’re so important for women who are going through menopause and may be experiencing a decline in sexual desire. This decline can be due to a testosterone deficiency and can be resolved by appropriate treatment. Australia is the first country in the world to have a licenced testosterone product available for use in women with HSDD or Hypoactive Desire Disorder, so in this interview we discuss appropriate treatment.

Women’s sexual wellbeing often declines after menopause and can be associated with significant personal and relationship distress, but it’s not always easy knowing how to tackle this issue with our patients. Understanding what’s important to our patients and how to broach the subject of sexual desire are key to both diagnosing and managing treatable conditions such as hypoactive sexual desire disorder, or HSDD.  12 minute listen

E149.3Nutritional challenges in ADHD (11 minutes)

Increasing awareness of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has led to consistent rises in the number of children both being diagnosed and being treated. Children with ADHD may find it hard to concentrate and may become hyperactive, to the point where the condition can interfere with their schooling, friendships, or family life. As GPs we will be familiar with the inattentive symptoms, such as being easily distracted and having difficulty with focusing, as well as the hyperactive-impulsive symptoms, such as fidgeting and squirming, but there are also significant nutritional challenges. What are they, let’s find out?

We’re approaching the end of a second year living through a pandemic and everyone just seems a little bit frazzled, and I’m not just talking about our patients. Health professionals have been working on the frontline this whole time and it’s important to look after our own mental health too. So in this interview we are speaking with a psychiatrist about preserving our own mental health as doctors, as well as improving our patient’s mental health.

When it comes to syncope, it’s important to understand the underlying cause as it is often not benign. Cardiac syncope has a much higher risk of mortality and death, so it is an important diagnosis to make. Assess the cardiac risk factors and refer early, as technology has evolved and we now have implantable cardiac monitors that increase diagnostic yield and are cost-effective. 12 minute listen

The symptoms of hypogonadism can be quite subtle, and they can often mimic mood disorders which are very common in the community. As GPs we need to be able to detect it, and the reason for detecting it, is that being on the right treatment will make a huge difference to our patients well-being.
