Episode 12: Menopause Part 2– Menopause, hormone therapy, and bone health—what’s the deal?
Hormone therapy can help ease the symptoms of menopause, but it’s got a bad rap thanks to a study released in 2002. The flawed study caused many healthcare professionals to cease prescribing hormone treatment, but in recent years it has begun working its way back into the good graces of the medical community. With so much information (and mis-information) out there, it can be hard to know what’s right for you. In this episode—part two of our three part series on menopause and bone health—bone and women’s health expert Dr. Margaret Nachtigall explains what hormone therapy is, the current recommendations around it, and what questions you should be asking your healthcare provider to know what’s right for you.
