I just found out I have Osteoporosis and am a bit lost
My doctor did a bone density test and discovered I have osteoporosis recently. I eat lots of dairy products and I still got it! I am now being asked to take 1000 mg of Calcium with D supplement. Apparently it extrenely hard to build bone back after there is bone loss, My doctor recommends a healthy diet, supplements and exercise can help to prevent further bone loss.
How much calcium do you get in a day? Do you drink or eat dairy or dairy alternatives? Do you take supplements? I'm sort of upset to know I have it, but at the same time I am glad I know and can now do something to prevent further breakdown of my bones. So I'd encourage other readers to have a bone density scan so that you know where you stand and can take the appropriate measures to prevent this insidious disease.
