Went to a lecture on Osteo last week and am a little worried. The Dr. seemed open minded in that other factors could help osteo but said he would treat anything over -2.0 aggressively with drugs especially in a younger person because 25% of the people who break their hips die. He even spelled out 'd...e...a..d' as if it wasn't stressed enough.
I stopped after the lecture to get his input on Strontium and he said it's a heavy metal like lead and I suppose if you took lead it would strengthen your bones too.
Now, I'm a little hesitant to take it although I knew it was a heavy metal and that Europe is using it as a first line therapy for osteo there.
A seed of doubt about not taking the meds and taking strontium has been planted...
