In the recent past, most women and many men with low bone density were all treated with the same kind of medicines. Now, we can treat each person individually. The first step would be to determine your risk of breaking a bone by comparing your DEXA results with established national statistics. If you have a higher risk, you should discuss with your physician and understand all three categories of medications that are now available. The decision of which medication is best for you should be determined, along with other adjunctive treatments such as supplements, diet and exercise.
