I have studied your case.

For osteomalacia treatment you need calcium and vit D.
Vit D3 is important for bone maintenance; low level can cause weakness of vertebral architecture along with all other bones.
For low level of vitD you need supplement or vit D injection.
Vit D deficiency is very common worldwide in spite of exposure to sunlight.

You can take high protein, and vitamin diet,
Avoid fatty, oily, junk food.
Drink 4 to 5 little water daily.

For example Breakfast options (7 - 8:30 p.m.): a. 1 slice of toasted bread with a glass of tomatoes, carrot and a pinch of lime juice put in a blender b. A bowl of fresh fruits Lunch options (1 - 2:30 p.m.): a. 2 bread with one whole tomato cut into slices, with green leafy vegetable and bowl of vegetables (salad) Dinner (6 - 7:30 p.m.; not later): a. one bread with a bowl of vegetable

Diet that should help you to reduce your cholesterol levels, but I need you to understand that this needs to be done gradually and so, start gradually and then lower your calories.
