HOW CAN I COM­BAT OS­TEO­PORO­SIS?

The Mail on Sunday - You - - News -

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?
