Worth Watching

 

 

Kirsty Wark: The Menopause and Me (BBC1 iPlayer)

 

Worth watching this week is Kirsty Wark’s personal take on menopause in her very interesting documentary which includes a segment about osteoporosis.

 

Kirsty investigates the effects of menopause on bone health and is filmed completing a FRAX questionnaire and a DEXA scan. In the follow-up consultation, Kirsty’s doctor reviews the results of her scan which show a T-score of -1.1 SD in her hip bone indicating osteopenia. Kirsty learns about the lifestyle changes she could make to improve her bone health.

 

On a lighter note, Kirsty interviews Jennifer Saunders and talks about the infamous Absolutely Fabulous clip where Patsy receives some surprisingly accurate advice from Saffy about caring for her bones!
