Osteoporosis Medication Not Effective for Menopause Women

Women who enter menopause period (stop menstruation) comsume many osteoporosis drugs to keep tulangnya density. But in fact take the medicine osteoporosis during menopause do not provide effective results.

Researchers from the bone Juliet Compston of Cambridge University to monitor bone mineral density of women who have undergone menopause does not change much even though they have osteoporosis drugs comsume (bisfosfonat).

Osteoporosis is most experienced elderly women caused tulangnya of the density is reduced because the decreasing estrogen level after menopause. Bone mineral density is low is an important risk factor for bone pengeroposan.
