HRT & osteoporosis

HRT can enhance quality of life and can also help in conditions such as osteoporosis. We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of HRT.

Osteoporosis can be a serious condition which is largely preventable. It is particularly important that patients who have suffered a fragility fracture* consider the options available in order to prevent further weakness of their bones. HRT is only one option; there is a choice of other treatments for osteoporosis. Please arrange to see a doctor if you are concerned.

*A fragility fracture is one that results from mechanical forces that would not ordinarily cause fracture in a healthy young adult. This is sometimes quantified as forces equivalent to a fall from a standing height or less.
