Customized Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) – Replacement of declining hormones slows the loss of bone and increases bone density, which helps to decrease the risk of fractures. Estrogen can prevent bone loss, and many practitioners report increased bone density following progesterone administration. Testosterone therapy may also be utilized to improve bone health. Thyroid hormone is required for normal bone remodeling to take place. If thyroid hormone is deficient, old bone that is not as strong and is abnormally thick tends to accumulate. However, excessive thyroid hormone may cause osteoporosis.
Calcium supplements, and other vitamins and minerals (including magnesium, manganese, folic acid, boron, zinc, strontium, copper, silicon, and vitamins A, B6, C, D, and K) are important to bone formation and maintenance.
