hi i have gone through your query.normally it occurs due to diietary deficiency and lack of excercise,nothing much to worry about. .i would suggest you to take oral drugs{ bisphosphonates,vit.D. and calcium supplements} with regular physical excercise for 6 month. Get dexa scan after 6 months. wish you good health.
