Osteoporosis Osteopenia treatment

Osteoporosis Osteopenia treatment can be personalized to fit your individual situation. Why personalize? There are very many potential treatments, both  pharmeceutical treatments and natural ones. To know which will be the most effective for you, is the fastest way to build new, strong bones. Here are some suggestions for figuring out what might be a good Osteoporosis Oteopenia treatment plan.

The first thing you want to do is to figure out just why you have experienced so much bone loss. 

Remember it is not normal to lose a significant amount of bone before your late 70s or early 80s.  Yes, bone building may slow after menopause for women and it may slow after age related lower testosterone levels drop for men. But you can still build new bone - even if at a slower pace well into old age.  If you have been diagnosed with bone loss you will want to address this situation immediately. You will want to set up Osteoporosis Osteopenia treatment plan as soon as possible.    

Step 1 for your Osteoporosis Osteopenia Treatment Plan

 If you have experienced bone loss, your first step in making your Osteoporosis Osteopenia treatment plan should be figuring out why you have lost so much bone. What are the causes of your bone loss? I have a page about  the possible causes of bone loss. I suggest that you read it and make a list of every cause that applies to you.  I hope you will do that now.  Then, when you have finished listing your causes of bone loss,  come back to this page to read more about a setting up your Osteoporosis Osteopenia treatment plan.  Go to: Causes of Bone Loss 

 Step 2: Osteopenia Osteoporosis Treatment Plan

Now that you know the things that have been causing your bone loss, you are ready to develop your own personalized Osteopenia Osteoporosis treatment plant so you can reverse all your bone loss and build new, stronger bone through out your body.

NOTE: After you complete the steps for making a personal bone Osteopenia Osteoprosis treatment plan, do ASK your health care provider review it so you are sure that it meets with his/her recommendations. 

 Ask yourself if your diet could be a cause of your bone loss.  Sometimes we get in the habit of eating too many acidic food. When our diet is not alkaline enough, our bodies remove calcium from our bones or teeth [calcium is alkaline] to bring out bodies back to a less acidic state. If you want to help in building a more alkaline diet, there are a number of books about the subject at: Amazon.

Could it be that frequent dieting

Sometimes people get in a habit of 'yo yo dieting'.  They diet but regain the weight they lost and then going on another diet.  If you lose weight but then gain it back over the next year or so and then start a new diet to lose weight again, you are creating the conditions for Osteopenia or Osteoporosis. 

Cause of Osteopenia, Osteoporosis. bone building exercises

Bone building activities. If you have NOT been doing bone building activities or exercises, then you will want to read about activities that can build stronger bones. Of course you should check with your health care provider before starting any new exercise activity. But if you have not read about bone buildign activies, do so now. Read: Activities and Exericises that build bone.

3. Supplements. There are a number of supplements that have been shown to help  build stronger bones. But remember that just taking some calcium tablet each day will not do it. You want to find supplements with proven track records for building stronger bones. See: Supplements Osteoporosis Osteopenia treatment.

4. Of course there are  pharmeceutical drugs that you can use to increase bone density. Some are more effective than others. Nearly all have side effects. Of course you will want to discuss the issue with your health care provider. If you want to learn more about the many pharmecutical drugs that can increase bone density before you speak to your health care provider then go to: Osteopenia treatment Pharmeceutical drugs  

5. Finally, if you have Osteopenia or Osteoporosis there are a some activites that you will want to avoid until your bones become stronger and  denser.  This is important. You do not want to stress your bones while they are in a weakened condition. Here is a page about : Activities to avoid

Additional suggestions:

Remember that building strong bones is important...especially as you age.  You do not want to suffer a fracture (ankle, hip, wrist, arm or some spinal vertebrae) in the next few years.  You really need to make rebuilding your bone density a priority in your life until your bone density tests show that your bone desnity is  back to normal. 

You can do it. Others have. I get notes from persons who have been subscribed to Osteopenia News, the free newsletter I send out,  that they are unsubscribing because they have reversed their bone loss. The no longer have Osteopenia or Osteoporosis. Nothing gives me more pleasure.

My hope is that you, too, will reverse your bone loss; that you will build strong bones once again. Others have done it; you can too.
