Thank you for your April 8 Life, etc., article “Save your bones” on bone density.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis (extreme bone density loss). Drugs did nothing. Supplements (calcium) did little, if anything.
After much consideration, I joined a small gym and signed up to work with a personal trainer. After a year’s training, one hour, two days a week, the bone density loss leveled out. After two years of dedicated training, my bone density went from extreme loss to mild to moderate loss. That is no longer osteoporosis but is “osteopenia.”
At my last physical in November, my bone density loss was “better” than mild to moderate loss. I owe this success to my exercise and training with a personal trainer who worked specifically to address my physical issues, bone density loss in particular. I hope others suffering with osteoporosis will benefit from my experience.
