Re: Sjogrens and Osteoporosis?

Hi patricia-it seems its you and me on this board. Anyway, me too sjogren's and severe osteoporosis. My bone spec. thinks that the bone loss is primarily due to estrogen deficiency in meno. And, a sjogren's expert I talked to at the univ. says she thinks estrogen is implicated in sjogren's--she is a researcher and this is her focus.
So are you like me about 6 yrs post meno and you didn't do hrt??
YOu don't really state whether you have osteoporosis, do you??
Also I indicated on another post , I have hashimoto's thyroiditis--do you have hashi's??
