Osteoporosis is one of the major health issues in women over 50 years of age. Dr. Slagle not uncommonly finds it in younger women as well.
Prevention/treatment is critical. There are tests available to measure whether you are predominantly building up or breaking down bone so you can see if you are on the right track in between or before Bone Density Tests. See Genova Diagnostics - and ask your doctor to order their Osteoporosis Risk Evaluation.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine & sugar.
Be sure to total 1400-2000mg of calcium daily in your various supplements depending upon whether you are taking preventively or you already have osteoporosis (the higher dose needed then).
