Do you have this disease or a family member or friend? How did you/they first discover it? What meds were used if any to combat it? Did it get reversed? My mother-in-law was 63 when she only reached into a cabinet, heard something snap and found she broke a rib! As per dovtor's orders she stopped smoking immediately, has been taking super calcium supplements daily and a Fosamaxx tablet once a week. Now at age 76 it has been reversed and she's even gained some weight that was sorely needed.
