Thanks, it is frustrating when you think you are doing all the right stuff to stay healthy. I am seeing an endocrinologist soon. Trying the exercise program specific to bones.

All I know is this for sure ..It's got to be related to our genes my grandfather ,his son (my dad) had this oh so smelly stuff they rubbed their legs arms and shoulders I can remember it Although they both lived to 89 and my dad 93 they suffered getting there I hope there is more research for my grandkids and my 3 sons that's all because at 81 almost 82 October I don't want to go under the knife that is also dangerous and if all the bones I have are porous what is the use of surgery it took the man next door from me 3 years after neck surgery and he walks still like his neck is in a brace (stiff like ) No thanks!!

Hi, Hal, I was on Fosamax before I broke my left femur. I was switched to Boniva and broke my right femur. I have been on Prolia for about 5 years, and my bone density has stabilized.

I have had osteoporosis for eight years now. Walk daily, have taken Adcal, but still had underlying pain and stiffness. Since CBD oil has been legalised,I decided to try it. Took a while to get in to system, but stiffness has gone, and I have a lot more movement. Well worth the money.
