Menopause and Bone Health With Estrogen Use

How estrogen affects bone density and overall bone health; what the research says on HRT and osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis risk increases because estrogen is the key regulator of bone metabolism in both men and women. When menopause hits, our estrogen levels decline, and this decline is associated with parallel declines in bone mineral density. However, not all hope is lost, "Menopausal hormone therapy has been shown to reduce hip and all fractures in the Women’s Health Initiative." This study is what is known as a clinical review. All the latest studies in this area are looked at to determine if there are correlations and similarities between them; in this case, it was found that estrogen supplementation helps increase bone density.
