In brief: Symptom relief

There is no cure since it is a genetic disease, but regular weight-bearing exercise to prevent bone loss, a diet rich in calcium and vitamin d, and sometimes even vitamin supplements will help.
Bisphosphonates are a group of drungs that can increase bone density, but they have side effects.
