YOU CAN TAKE IT SERIOUSELY AND MANAGE PROPER DIET CONTROL AND FOOD MANAGEMENT TO BEAT THE TROUBLES CAUSED DUE TO 'OSTEOPOROSIS: IF YOU LIKE MY PREFERENCES YOU CAN ADOPT THEM,HERE THEY ARE:- 1Eat regular meals,specially breakfast 2Getatleast half of an hourof safesunlight everyday.morning sunlight from 7am to 8.30 am and evening sunlight from 5.30m to 7pm is better and doesn't cause any sunburn, 3 avoid alcohol intakes and smoking 4.pregnant women should take calcium supplement regularly' RECOMONDED DOSAGE IS 1,500mg per day or more than it. 5.have milk and milk products,almounds, green leafy vegetables and fruits. 6.do regular aerobic exercises,which are impact and weight-bearing workouts. Performing any classical dance in full procedural styles are also helpful, though swimming helps in maintaining flexibility,it doesn't help build bone density , andhence, doesn't prevent osteoporous.

I have 3 bottles of Dr. Weil s Juvenon. I am taking the first bottle and 1/2 + through it.They do not expire until 06/2015. I have been getting other supplements thru Vitamin Shoppe .I would like to be on a more uniform program. I have osteoporsis and have broken a number of bones,but do not want to take the severe drugs/injections that traditional Doctors prescribe. I try and take up to 1800 to 2,000. mg. of calcium daily. I am 81 yrs. old, and in good shape for someone my age. I exercise at a gym 2-3 days a week for 1 hour. Perhaps you might assist me in suggesting supplements.

My husband, Michael is 50yrs old,187lbs, 6 2 , caucasian male and is in good general health. He had surgery to remove his parathyroid glands 2 yrs ago in Tampa,Florida before we moved overseas here to Cyprus.He takes a Centrum Silver multi-vitamin and a Citracal Calcium Citrate+D3 twice a day. We eat wholegrains, eggwhites, legumes no real meat mostly fish. He does not drink or smoke. He does consume black coffee daily. He runs 5x a week 6-7miles each time, does calisthenics and lifts weights daily. He wears glasses for reading now. We are concerned about his bone density levels. He has just had a very bad month at the dentist. Can TMJ occur when your parathyroid glands are removed? What can we do to be sure he does not develop bone disease or osteoporosis? We read about the blood/urine lab tests and the DXA and VFA tests. Is there anything else we should know? Will doctors here in Cyprus know how to treat this? Which doctor should we see at this point, an endocrinologist or an Osteo doctor? Thanks!
