Osteoporosis can result from estrogen deficiency in the body due to age-related or postmenopausal bone loss in women. Estrogen plays a vital role in bone homeostasis and the growth of skeletal tissues. Postmenopausal estrogen deficiency speeds up rapidly among women, especially during the initial 3 to 5 years following menopause.
In addition, overactive thyroid, deficiency of growth hormone, and primary hyperparathyroidism are some other causes of Osteoporosis. Nearly 10 million Americans have Osteoporosis, while 34 million have low bone mass – a condition known as osteopenia.
Osteoporosis is a health condition that happens when your body makes too little bone or experiences more bone loss. In this condition, bones become brittle and weak, and they easily break from a fall even with mild pressure. For instance, gentle twists or bending over can cause a fracture. The fractures related to Osteoporosis commonly occur in the spine, wrist, or hip.
During the early bone loss stages, there are no visible symptoms. But once Osteoporosis weakens your bones, you might develop the following symptoms:
Hormone replacement therapy is clinically approved for the treatment and prevention of Osteoporosis. Depending on your condition, it can be estrogen or progesterone or both in women. Among postmenopausal women, hormone replacement therapy not just treats Osteoporosis but also provides relief from the symptoms of menopause.
After menopause, there is significantly low production of estrogen and progesterone hormones in the body. This results in lowering the bone density. Hormone replacement therapy helps increase bones’ density and prevents fractures of the hip, wrist, or spine. However, this treatment doesn’t replace these hormones loss in your body. They only supplement your body to the lowest levels needed for the prevention of bone loss. Treatment may combine progesterone and estrogen or estrogen and progesterone alone.
There can be side effects of hormone replacement therapy for osteoporosis treatment, including headaches, depression, breast tenderness, weight gain, skin irritation, and premenstrual syndrome.
By consulting a professional and licensed hormone doctor, you can get maximum benefits from the hormone replacement therapy for Osteoporosis while eliminating or minimizing side effects. Your doctor adjusts the dose, regimens, and type of hormonal therapy, which helps maximize the treatment results. Menopause doesn’t mean that you have to live with weaker bones and discomfort.
