More when I find more.
PipBone demineralization is a precursor to osteopenia but not necessarily osteoporosis or osteoarthritis. It can be caused by poor diet, lack of exercise, or a combination of diet, disease, arthritic conditions, and lack of exercise. There are meds you can take, review your diet, start some weight bearing exercises and talk to your doctor about what vitamins and meds you should take. I take a combination of Mangnesium, calcium, Vit. D. LindySee Lindy, how confused I am about this? It's all a learning curve. All I do know is I don't want my hubby on any of the bone building meds. There is research on nanobacteria being implicated with that jaw death thing.
And we know how I feel about bacteria.
PipAh yes, the bone buiding meds. Not sure what the % is for the jaw necrosis side effect. If you find out let me know. Bone demineralization can be stopped with proper measures and you may not have to move on to the bone build. meds. LindySilica is listed as an "essential" for arthritis in the Prescription for Natural Healing. I went to the health food store, and its there in liquid form. Good luck, as I am currently finding out about the pain of osteoporosis.
