A 45-year-old female asked:

Is drinking orange juice bad if you have osteopenia ? because of the acid and bone loss?

Nope: Some of the orange juice is even supplemented with calcium, which may be helpful if your diet is deficient. The "acid" in orange juice is not harmful.

No: Orange juice will not be a problem. If you have osteopenia, you should be taking vitamin d and calcium in the proper dosages. Also, if you happen to be on synthroid, it is even more important to take these. See your md about proper dosages for you. You should also be doing weight bearing exercises 3 - 5 times a week to help fight this condition.
