Aimee D. Shu

Endocrinologist

Bio:   I am an endocrinologist with particular interests in reproductive and bone health.

I enjoy treating patients with menstrual disorders, menopause, fractures, osteoporosis, parathyroid imbalance, and calcium imbalance.

As a certified menopause practitioner (North American Menopause Society), I help women fine-tune their health at the mid-life transition. Some women transition through menopause with ease, while others experience challenging symptoms like hot flashes, slowed metabolism, and mood changes. This transition period provides a good opportunity to create a "game plan" for preserving future health. It also marks the beginning of natural bone loss, leaving one more susceptible to fragility fractures.

I provide individualized treatment plans for bone health to men and women of all ages, including for those with specific challenges such as chronic steroid use. As a certified clinical densitometrist (International Society for Clinical Densitometry), I personally review all my patients' bone density scan images. Thus, please bring any non-Stanford bone density scan images to your appointment with me.

Appointments with me are available on Stanford's main campus (300 Pastuer Drive) and at the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center (450 Broadway, Redwood City).
