Has Anyone Had Any Success With Adding Powdered Collagen Supplement To Their Diet To Build Bone And Have Better Numbers On The Dexa Scan?

Has Anyone Had Any Success With Adding Powdered Collagen Supplement To Their Diet To Build Bone And Have Better Numbers On The Dexa Scan?

My doctor wants me to start taking Fosamax because of osteoporosis. I have heard about lots of bad side effects. I thought I would try powdered collagen before taking more meds. Also, if you are on Fosamax, has your bone density gotten any better. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

Does Osteo Porosis Affect Your Teeth?

Does Osteo Porosis Affect Your Teeth?

I lost 4 bottom teeth a few years ago and I had to get a partial plate. I thought it was from grinding my teeth at night but could it also be that the gums are weakened from Osteoporosis?
