  • It's that stuff that actress Sally Field takes. I want to say Boniva but not sure. Proudmommy is right, talk with your doctor.

  • I honestly am doubtful of it being reversed, but the effects can be at least lightened. I have bad joint pain and I think arthritis and I am only 25, someone told me yesterday to try pills with glucosamine with condritin which are found in the supplement isle at the grocery store for about $20. I looked up studies on arthritis and such and that was the number one recommended thing to try by doctors. :)

    Here is a little bit more info.:)

  • As far as I know you can't. You can get meds. to stop it, but you can't get rid of it, that's why DRs . push women to take care so much bec you can't get it of it. Id talk with your Dr. though.

  • Yes, there are medications that can help reverse bone loss. Talk to your doctor. My grandma did. And, she was MUCH improved!

  • Vitamin D is so important and many Dr's are recommending it to their patients. The best form of Vitamin D is Vitamin D3. Not sure if it can reverse the osteoporosis but I know women who are taking it that have this condition.

    Good luck to you....

  • Supplements and exercise would help stop the progression of osteoporosis. A healthy lifestyle can help avoid falls and fractures if one has osteoporosis. Some people opted to have a hip replacement after they have had a fall or fracture due to the brittle bones.
