Abstract

The presented data for the first time show the perimenopausal course of trabecular bone loss (as measured by QCT of the lumbar spine). Acceleration of bone loss during perimenopause reached half-maximal values of the total bone loss measured around menopause, despite adequate serum estradiol levels.
