: : Hello!
: : After being diagnosed 1 yr ago with osteopenia I read Dr. John Lee's book on menopause and began a treatment plan of natural progesterone cream, calcium and Vitamin D. Feeling very confident, I had a follow-up bone desity test several days ago and to my dismay, am 10% worse than last year. I understand that certain medications may counteract the effects of natural progesterone, but badly need a resource to consult with on this as Dr. Lee is not available (although I did send him a email)I am 40 yrs old and am experiencing early menopause. Any suggestions and/or resources? Thanks in advance.

: You have to be aggressive to treat this disease. I was thru menopause at 44 and 7 years later i have advanced osteoporosis. I take Miacalcin nasal spray and PreFest a organic harmone. There is also further progession of the desease at least 1 year following treatment. The only thing you can hope for is that you halt it's progression. You should have another scan after 18 months of treatment.

Do you mind telling me what your bone density number was when your osteopenia was first diagnosed and what it was recently. I am -1.33 and am following a Bone Density Diet - "6 weeks to a Stong Body and Mind" by George J. Kessler. I am worried the book is a bunch of hogwash but I have a year to try to control this myself through diet, calcium pills and vitamin D or I just bet I will have to start with the medication.

Thanks.
