Subject: Hormone therapy could help improve bone health in menopausal women
Loss in bone density and bone mass can be common for women after going through menopause. Recent studies, with a test group of over 1200 women, suggest that through menopausal hormone therapy (MHP), post-menopausal women may in fact be able to slow down the effects of osteoporosis and improve bone density.
- Menopausal women can improve their bone mass and bone structure by undergoing hormone therapy.
- When used in the right context, specifically in postmenopausal women younger than 60 years old for whom the benefits outweigh risks, menopausal hormonal therapy is effective for both the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
- Osteoporosis is a progressive condition in which bones become weaker and are more likely to fracture or break.
"Taken for menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, previous research has already revealed the benefits of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) on bone mineral density."
