Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypoestrogenism: It refers to the lowered secretion of the natural female sex hormone known as estrogen. It is an umbrella term used for estrogen deficiency in various conditions. Its abnormalities may lead to infertility, bone loss, and lipid abnormalities.

Osteoporosis: Osteoporosis means the bone has become porous. It is a disease in which too much bone is lost, and the body makes relatively little bone. As a result, bones become weak and can break easily if you fall.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT): It is a treatment to relieve symptoms of menopause. It replaces hormones that are at a lower level as you approach menopause.
