Knee osteoarthritis and menopausal hormone therapy in postmenopausal women

Another one of the benefits of oestrogen to menopausal women. I have known and repeatedly told my patients that oestrogen is good for all joints, and helps to slow down the natural deterioration that occurs with age. There are other studies like this one which show the same thing. Combing oestrogen with fish oil, turmeric and cinnamon all have advantages for joints. Using them and keeping them active also slows down the onset of osteoarthritis.

Objective: The incidence of osteoarthritis
(OA) increases after menopause, and may be related to hormonal changes
in women. Estrogen deficiency is known to affect the development of OA,
and menopausal hormone therapy
(MHT) is suggested to be related to the development of OA. However, the
relationship between knee OA and MHT remains controversial. The
association between knee OA prevalence and MHT was investigated using large-scale national data.

Methods: Data were collected from 4,766 postmenopausal women from the Korea
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2009-2012). MHT was
defined as regular hormone medication for ≥1 year, and demographic and
lifestyle variables were compared between the MHT and non-MHT groups.
Knee OA was defined according to symptoms and radiographic findings.

Results: In the
multiple logistic regression models, the OA odds ratio was 0.70 for the
MHT group (95% confidence interval 0.50-0.99), compared with the non-MHT

Conclusions: The prevalence of knee OA was lower in participants with MHT than in those without MHT.
