If it's due to osteoporosis, there is nothing you can do to "fix it"... Take calcium 600-650mg with vitamin D twice a day to prevent futher vertebral fractures. If you were my patient, I would obtain a bone scan of your spine and hip to see if you had advanced osteoporosis; there are other treatments that can stimulate bone formation more quickly... Do you have chronic renal disease??? If so, this can increase the chance for osteoporosis due to something that occurs with the parathyroid glands. The problem is that osteoporosis, of course, is not a rare disorder but is actually very common. And if you are a Caucasian woman over the age of 50 years, you have a 40% to 50% chance of sustaining a fragility fracture sometime in your remaining lifetime. If you're a man over the age of 50 years, you have a 20% chance of developing an osteoporotic-related fragility fracture. Unfortunately, fewer than half of the people hospitalized with a hip fracture actually are able to recover to their prefracture state. I've posted a website: the National Osteoporosis Foundation where you can learn all about this disease in the older population... []
