fosamax femur lawsuitWomen’s early menopause raises risks of osteoporosis and early death, medical experts say, citing various studies. As they age, women may succumb to menopause and those who experience it early are more than twice at risk for developing osteoporosis. Shorter lifespans have even been statistically associated with women’s early menopause, medical experts say.

Among the women tested in studies that had menopause before the age of 47, their bone mineral density was measured and found to be lower than those who had menopause after 47. They had a 56 percent chance of osteoporosis compared to 30 percent of those who had later menopause.
