In brief: It may help you!
There have been several studies using hormone replacement therapy rather than biphosphonates (boniva, actonel, (risedronate) etc) which is your typical primary care recommendation.
If you were to visit a hormone specialist, then first line therapy may actually be hrt using estradiol, (used since the 1930's) testosterone and other human identical hormones. Visit www.Folsompharmacy.Com for a list of specialists.
