Hip Bone Loss

Posted by Teresa [7053.7818] on October 31, 2010 at 00:36:38:

My grandmother had a hip fracture when she was 80. My mom is 67 and recently got diagnosed with bone loss of the hip and is on Boniva. Is bone loss in the hip hereditary? Is it because she's sedentary?> I'm 47. What can I do to prevent it beside taking calcium supplements? Boniva gives her heartburn and indigestion, but she can't take anything for it because the drug indications says not to. I do not want to have to take a drug for this when I'm older.

NationalOsteoporosisFoundation.com is a fabulous website. Click on "Active" to see the active discussions! Become a member (it's free!) and get daily emails of current discussions. There's a wealth of information there. Most people are choosing to deal with their osteoporosis with diet and weight bearing exercise--not with Fosamax, Actonel and/or Boniva. A number of us are using Strontium, which is a mineral. I found this website when I googled "Osteoporosis success stories". Check it out!

Don't forget D3.

Go to "lef.org" in upper right corner put "osteoporosis" in the search box. You'll find the most up to date medical research on your concerns.
So far no one has mentioned vitamin K or more specifically K1/K2. Without it the Calcium may do more harm than good! You'll find plenty of info. on it there.

Besides the vitamin k2 that Craig mentioned, I am taking potassium and magnesium. I also am taking Concentrace Mineral Drops which I add to my morning beverage. Minerals are very important to osteo.
