Post Menopausal Osteoporosis: Clinical review

Post Menopausal Osteoporosis is a prevalent skeletal disorder that affects women after menopause. It results from hormonal changes, particularly a decline in estrogen levels, leading to decreased bone density and strength.The condition increases the risk of fractures, especially in the spine, hips, and wrists. Clinical assessment of postmenopausal osteoporosis involves evaluating medical history, risk factors, and bone mineral density measurements. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the gold standard for diagnosing and monitoring bone density in affected individuals. Treatment options for postmenopausal osteoporosis include lifestyle modifications, calcium and vitamin D supplementation, and various medications like bisphosphonates, selective estrogen receptor modulators, and monoclonal antibodies. Regular weight-bearing exercises and resistance training can help improve bone health and reduce fracture risk. Fall prevention strategies, such as home modifications and balance exercises, can significantly reduce the likelihood of fractures. Long-term use of certain medications, such as glucocorticoids, can exacerbate bone loss in postmenopausal women.
