Vit D,K and others: It takes more than just vit d and calcium. Vit k in the form of mk7, magnesium and trace minerals are important. Strontium can be helpful. Oxaloacetic acid has been shown to slow bone loss. Of course hormones can slow bone loss. Wt bearing and strength exercise are important. There are options besides biphosphonates.
