HOW CAN I COMBAT OSTEOPOROSIS?
QI am 67 and have been diagnosed with osteoporosis in my neck and hip. After a bone scan, I was prescribed alendronic acid tablets to strengthen my bones – but the list of possible side effects is quite frightening. As I am not due another scan until 2020, I’m concerned about taking the tablets without knowing if there is any improvement in my bone density. What are my options?
