I was reading up and realized I had read before that menopause often induces bone loss then realized I had early onset menopause at age 44. At the time I was thrilled to have no more periods. Oh, well. I can't change that and will just work with what I have. I realize this won't apply to men like you, but maybe some women reading this thread will benefit something. I will follow up on this thread next week after I see the new doctor. Maybe he has encouraging plans and I'll calm down. In any case, I am resolved to only pout about this for a while. You know the serenity prayer about accepting the things I cannot change.
