As per your history is concerned please follow my advise:
1) weight-bearing exercise 2) quitting smoking 3) not drinking alcohol excessively 4) Take vitamin D daily 800 IU 5) calcium-1200mg per day
Take medications as required as there is no side effects at all. I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to write to me. Wishing you all the best.
