Treatment for Osteoporosis
While osteoporosis cannot be fully reversed or treated, understanding the risk factors and following the doctor's recommendations can help manage the condition. Calcium and vitamin D deficiency can make the bone health worse and increase the risk that the patient may end up breaking a bone. To reduce risk, the doctor may recommend calcium and vitamin D supplements. Besides, physical activity, exercise, and diet can help slow down osteoporosis.
