Osteoporosis: Currently it is better to think of osteoporosis as a condition that can be managed or treated rather than cured. This is usually performed by dietary modifications, ingestion of supplemental calcium, vitamin d and a class of agents notice the bisphosphonates. These are usually delivered via oral or intramuscular injection on a weekly or monthly or even yearly basis.

Not exactly...: If you have osteoporosis you want to decrease or slow any further loss in bone density. In addition you want to prevent fractures by trying to maintain your bone density.
