I've spoken to my elderly great aunt today (88yrs old), last relative from my mothers side I have. She has heart problems and has been diagnosed with advanced osteoporosis - had been prescribed Fossamax - alarm bells rang immediately for me. Wily lady however has not taken this - is not convinced after looking at the side effects. I asked her hubby to look on the internet (bless him he's 92 and game for it) - I'm not really up to researching it but thought I'd ask on here as well. Anyone recommend a supplement they've used - I ask also for myself as I have been diagnosed with osteopoenia. I've read about the benefits aof strontium and vit K? Be very grateful for any input though.
