Decreased levels of oestrogen causes osteoporosis. True or false?

A. True

B. False

I have been asked this question in final exam.

My question comes from Disorders in Muscular and Skeletal System in division Locomotion and Movement of Biology – Class 11

Correct choice is A. True

To explain I would say: Osteoporosis is a disorder of the skeletal system. It leads to a reduction in bone mass and increases the chances of the patient getting fractures. Reduced oestrogen level is a common cause.
