Bone health in women can change after menopause.
In Calcium: Recommended Daily Calcium Intake – Women: 50+ the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health explain:
- “When women go through menopause, there is a rapid loss of bone because of decreased oestrogen and this process may last from 4-8 years after menopause”.
In Healthy Body: Menopause and Your Bone Health the (United Kingdom) NHS (National Health Service) elaborate on:
The drop in bone density is caused by falling levels of the female hormone oestrogen. Oestrogen helps to protect bone strength”.
So what can you do to protect your bones? In Prevention: What Can You Do To Protect Your Bones? the [United States] National Osteoporosis Foundation explain:
- “Get enough calcium and vitamin D and eat a well balanced diet
- Engage in regular exercise
- Eat foods that are good for bone health, such as fruits and vegetables
- Avoid smoking and limit alcohol to 2-3 drinks per day”.
