It may help you!: There have been several studies using hormone replacement therapy rather than biphosphonates (boniva, actonel, (risedronate) etc) which is your typical primary care recommendation. If you were to visit a hormone specialist, then first line therapy may actually be hrt using estradiol, (used since the 1930's) testosterone and other human identical hormones.
