Does anyone have any suggestions on increasing bone density thru diet and not drugs at post menopause.

@lisalucier Believe me as Merpreb said you will know when the hot flashes begin and at night I'm still throwing the covers off and on my nighttime ritual still

@contentandwell When I was having a lot of them I would open the freezer to get cool , keep a glass of ice water handy and cold cloth . Why are women suffering with these Men don't . lol
@lioness. My post menopause ones stopped, I get them now from immunosuppressants. I don’t think everyone taking immunosuppressants gets them, I guess I’m just lucky. 😖

I am not sure if I am having hot flashes in a premenopausal kind of way or if I'm just having worse trouble than before regulating my temperature (e.g., after blow drying with hot air for 20 minutes or a hot shower). I've done some of the head in the freezer bit, @lioness. I've also turned on our ceiling fan in our bedroom (one reason I'm glad whoever built this house was super big on ceiling fans everywhere) and stood below.

@lisalucier If you are in the 40,s that's when I had the change as they called it . The hot flashes you will know as merpreb said . It starts in your chest but like a fire the heat intensity blows up over your neck and face and sticking your head into your freezer cools the heat down so you are having hot flash . I'm assuming your periods have stopped and the hot flash starts then as well as hormone change as I said I was a bear snapping at everyone husband got the worse of me. lol I never had any premenopausal

@lisalucier– Lisa- I think that you are beginning Peri-menopause. My hot flashes were just like yours. I was drenched after showering, doing my hair, even moving sometimes.
I think that it might be a good idea to see your gynecologist to discuss options to keep you as comfortable as possible. Or have you already?
