Embracing Menopause #2: Bones Following Menopause

We often associate osteoporosis - when bones become weak and brittle - with ageing, but there’s another facet to osteoporosis that is not discussed as much, and that’s menopause.  In the second of a 3-part series on menopause, we speak to consultant obstetrician and gynaeologist Dr Premitha Damodaran, and consultant rheumatologist Dr Yeap Swan Sim, to find out how menopause increases the risk of osteoporosis and what can be done to better protect your bones following menopause.
