Hello,as doctor told she has to shed her weight , there is no other way. consuming a balanced diet with adequate calcium and vitamin D helps her. Estrogen hormone therapy after menopause ( referred to as hormone replacement therapy or HRT) has been shown to prevent bone loss, increase bone density, and prevent bone fractures
