What are the medical causes of teeth yellowing. I have yellow teeth and crohn's. Also have severe osteoporosis. Tested negative for celiac. ?

Diet: There are a couple of reasons for yellow teeth. One is diet. Drinking a lot of coffee, tea, red wine, grape juice and other things like that will stain teeth. Poor oral hygiene and infrequent dental care can lead to stained and decayed teeth. The best thing to do is to see a dentist and find out what is going on in your mouth and how to treat this and improve your teeth.

How is osteoporosis reversed or stopped?

Depends: Hi. That depends on the cause for poor bone health. I suggest you see an endocrinologist with interest in metabolic bone disease, and have a thorough evaluation. If an underlying cause is found, that is preferentially treated. At 45, you're young, and a good history, physical, and diagnostic evaluation may be warranted. Good luck!

Assuming no diseases that cause bone loss, you can help prevent osteoporosis with adequate calcium and vitamin D intake, healthy diet, weight-bearing exercise, and no smoking. There are drugs that can be used to help prevent osteoporosis in the setting of osteopenia, including bisphosphonates, the SERM raloxifene (in women), and estrogen use (in women). As a 25 yo man, your risk is very low.

Healthy Living!: A diet rich in calcium (dairy, dark green vegetables, fortified foods) and vitamin d (fish, eggs, liver, fortified foods) can help.
