Can high FSH make you fat and drop your bone density?

This is a short post, but I was fascinated by this article.  They did a study about high FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) that indicates it might be responsible for weight gain and bone loss in older women.

I read it thinking… “uh-oh”.

My FSH has been high these past few months.  Apparently, taking estrogen may do little to stop bone loss.  I am curious to see more research on this subject.  It is still too early to be sure, but this would change a lot of things.
