Decadron (Dexamethasone)

Osteoporosis is mainly a disease of women. It affects one third of post menopausal females, causing their bones to dissolve, increasing the risk of fractured vertebrae, wrists and hips. Conventional wisdom had it that calcium supplementation could prevent the progression of osteoporosis in 30 per cent of affected women. Extensive research has failed to substantiate this formerly held belief.
Oestrogen replacement therapy has consistently displayed its capacity to prevent the course of osteoporosis in post menopausal women. With or without progesterone, there is little reason why all women entering the menopause should not seek advice as to the need for Hormone Replacement Therapy. There is still some question as to which women should be taking Hormone Replacement Therapy. Remember that 60 per cent of post menopausal women were never going to suffer from osteoporosis in the first place.
Treatment is best initiated, after the procedure of Bone Densiometry, which demonstrates the presence of active bone disease. The cost of this investigation is not born by Medicare and this factor still comes between many women and appropriate management of this unwanted and untoward outcome of “natural” female aging.

White women that smoke and don’t exercise are at higher risk of osteoporosis. No smoking, walking for an hour and 15 minutes of sunlight a day are the health promotional corollaries.
Noteworthy is Germain Greer’s articulate response to the menopause. She adopts the attitude that nature knows best. She advances the “liberating” message of grow old with good grace.
Don’t try to avoid the inevitable. Osteoporosis and fractured hips are not inevitable. Let’s see if Germain Greer advances the same argument when she is lying in bed with a painful crush fracture of an osteoporotic vertebral spine.
