Is there any relationship between osteoporosis and hormone levels or declining hormonal levels?
In a recent copy of Dr. Julian Whitaker’s newsletter, he spoke about a French study correlating osteoporosis and diminished levels of the hormone DHEA. In this study of approximately 300 men and women with osteoporosis, half received 50 mg of DHEA daily and half received a placebo. After six months, bone loss decreased by 11% in the women’s DHEA group and by an astonishing 26% after one year. However, there were no changes in the men who supplemented with DHEA.
