In brief: Diet, exersice &meds
Osteoporosis can have many causes, but can be treated.
Eliminate smoking, limit sodas, eat a healthy balanced diet with plenty of calcium, vitamins c and d. Weight bearing exercises help increase bone mass, strenght and balance training helps to prevent falls. Talk to your doctor about prescription medications that halt bone loss and/or encourage bone growth. Get a bone mineral density study.
