  • OBJECTIVE It is unknown whether long term cross-sex hormone treatment affects the human skeleton. We monitored bone mineral density and biochemical markers of bone turnover for 28-63 months in 20 male-to-female transsexuals (M-->F) treated with anti-androgens and oestrogens, and 19 female-to-male transsexuals (F-->M) treated with androgens. They underwent gonadectomy 13-35 months after the start of cross-sex hormone administration. DESIGN Bone mineral density (BMD) and the markers of bone… CONTINUE READING
