    The prevention of osteoporosis needs to be a consistent lifestyle modification, including nutritional supplementation and proper hormonal replacement. The best results have been shown to involve estrogen, progesterone, nutrients, and weight-bearing exercise.

    *Indirect cause of death for hundreds of thousands of people each year.
    *20% of patients die within one year of a hip fracture.
    *50% of those who fracture their hips end up in nursing homes.

    PREVENTION REQUIRES 3 FACTORS

    1. Preventing loss of calcium
    2. Maintaining the soft tissue portion of the bone
    3. Proper hormonal replacement

    ESTROGEN

    • Reduces osteoporosis by as much as 50%
    • Needs to be started early and continued

    PROGESTERONE

    • Can prevent osteoporosis but is more effective when given with estrogen
    • Can reverse osteoporosis
