bone loss?HY or someone please!

Posted by Sally on June 18, 2002 at 11:12:01:

I went into early menopause and I am skrinking but can not take hormone replacements-i have an appt for a test. not sure yet. But what can i do? Is it lack of estrogen that causes bone loss? My fsh is high. low progestorone and what is someone opnions on the progestorone creams. I also have muscle problems-could that cause shrinking? I have no menopause symtoms.Just no periods.Should I ask for anymore tests-docs wont check estrogen alone. Advice please! Also low serum dhea. Thank you in advance

Hi, Sally.

Although taking about 100 milligrams of DHEA twice a day will likely help, walking an hour a day and 3 times a week of underwater exercises will help more. All together will help more than anything.

If you have read the osteoporosis archives you know about hydroxyapatite with boron.

Let us know how you are doing in about a year.

A doctor should monitor you while you try taking DHEA and progesterone cream. The calcium that Walt suggested is the best at building bone. As far as the exercise goes, ONLY resistance exercise will build bone. Unfortunately, walking may not be enough. If you can't do anything else, please do the walking and swimming but even some modest weight training will help your build new bone. Lastly, increase the amount of protein in your diet and take a supplement containing Vitamin D, The special calcium, boron, phosphorus, and magnesium. This has been PROVEN to slow bone loss.
