Moderate-to-severe menopausal vasomotor symptoms increased hip fracture risk

December 18, 2014

Women with moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms during menopause showed lower bone mineral density and higher rates of hip fracture than women without the symptoms, according to research published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“Compared with women who did not have hot flashes at the beginning of the study, women who reported having hot flashes at the beginning of the study had almost double the risk of hip fractures,” Carolyn J. Crandall, MD, of David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, told Endocrine Today. “Women who reported hot flashes also had lower bone density at the lumbar spine and the hip.”
