slight osteoporosis: treat it or not?

Hi there,

I am writing regarding my mother who's sixty. She s in doubt whether taking osteoporosis medication or not.

She has been diagnostized with a slight (? borderline) osteoporosis after menopauses. Her density measures have remained +/- stable.

Her long time gynecologist has advised her not to treat.

But recently she has passed a check up with a generalist and he stresses her condition calls for treatment.

What I think is that the gynecologist, a well-known & wealthy med. does not need the extra bucks resulting from a closer follow-up while the new one is after every opportunity to make $$.

(Note that money is not an issue as my mother's medicare will cover the whole cost.)

Thanks for your insights

PS: sorry for the approximative english but I am not english educated

if they are going to treat her with more oestrogen then dont do it. oesrogen will slow it but not stop it and increase the chances of getting certain cancers. tell your dear mother to read up about dr john lee and natural progesterone. they guarantee bone mass increase if there are no other underlying issues like body does not accept calcium properly. they did a test over 30 years and every woman had no bad side effects and all had bone mass increase.

its not a wonder drug its just all the pollutants in the world have in balanced your mothers hormone levels, does she have any of these other symptoms some she wont have being as these symptoms can range from 25 year old to 80+. and as i will mention again no side effects the creams are 20mg per day on average and a womans body when in 3rd trimestor makes 300mg so its compleatly safe when not preg women make 5-20 depending on time of month. also men can take it helps levels of testosterone and all the perks with that.

your mothers medicare will not cover natural progesterone as they can not patent it to make money as its bioidentical to what your body makes. but it is fairly cheap about £17 for 3 months supply. thousands of women like your mom have benefited from it so please google it or google dr john lee. im trying to help i do not sell it i just believe in it as have seen it work and use it myself and so does my wife. lets just say libido is great plus side to it
