Longer therapy with puberty delaying medication lowers bone density: Study

Time : 23rd of June 2022 02:15:34 PM

The median overall bone density Z-scores were less than 0 for the young transgenders who were using gonadotropin-releasing hormone or estradiol. The bone density Z-score less than 0 suggests a lower bone density in these people than in others of the same age and sex. Also, prolonged therapy with gonadotropin-releasing hormone was linked to a low bone mineral density Z-score.
