Can Perimenopause Cause a Low Immune System

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello Ladies,

Kind of a weird question but I have always been extremely healthy until Perimenopause. I got all my bloodwork back from the drs. yesterday. She said I wasnt in Menopause but I am experiencing all Perimenopause Symptoms!! She checked my immune system and said it was low. I don't know if any of you ladies have experienced this. Please let me know if you have thank you!

    Yes. I was checked by an immunologist who told me it was low. Perimeno is known to do that. So is stress. Not sleeping well..

    That's why I always ask women if they were checked for things like reactivated viruses which are caused by the immune system being low.

    Good Morning Shana, From what I experienced during Peri, I would have to say definitely. Even though I took supplements, I always felt run down and I had a reoccurrence of cold sores every two weeks. I should add though I was going through a terribly stressful time as my mother had a stroke and survived it and live several years at a nursing home which was horrifying. And I also have fibromyalgia so my experience would be different. do you take supplements I know that sounds like a strange question because even though I took supplements and I was taking everything I was still run down. I take a multi, lysine, D3 and several others, so it clearly was hormonal, affecting it. do you take anything for acid ingestion, like omeprazole, Prilosec etc. that really depletes the immune system. try taking a really good probiotic, there is a probiotic out there called, mood probiotic, all of our health starts in our โ€œGUTโ€œ. that Probiotic can also help with anxiety. Iโ€™m telling you it really reeks havoc on our bodies/mind/soul. sorry for any grammar errors, this forum is famous for that. selenium is very good for the immune system. hope this helps, have a blessed day ๐Ÿ˜ƒ xo

      Hi Lisa,

      Thank You This was also very helpful. I am taking a lot of supplements...for 2 months now...it seems to be helping and been taking probitotics everyday....and eating saurkrautt everyday as well. I have seen so many drs. for the all of this and its very nice to be able to be apart of this forum....because drs. are not always right and you have to go by how you feel....Thank You so much Lisa have a blessed day๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

    How do they check the immune system by blood is it like a CBC'S? Or do they run a separate test, I have never heard that before and I have had tons of blood work ran before.

      Hi Crosado,

      My dr. ran blood tests for food Allergies and that is how they found out. Ask for an Ige test. That will tell you about the immune system....I hope that helps๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š
