Stopping HRT Does Not Accelerate Bone Loss in Postmenopausal Women

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) Mar 25 – Postmenopausal women who stop hormone replacement therapy (HRT) do not loose bone at an unusually high rate, researchers report in the Archives of Internal Medicine for March 25.

Dr. Gail A.

These women underwent additional BMD measurements as part of the PEPI Safety Follow-up Study.
