The 6 Diseases Linked To Osteoporosis​


Sit-ups with my pooch


There are 6 diseases linked to osteoporosis and Type 1 Diabetes is one. I was given Fosamax, however, I didn’t take it yet. You have to take it with once/week with 8 ounces of water, and sit straight without leaning or bending for 30 minutes on an empty stomach. Since I couldn’t master that, I decided to wait. Also, there’s concern for fractures. I was advised to only take med for a short-term, then give it a 3 month rest. I’s still weighing my options. Until then, exercise, diet, and remove or secure hazardous objects that are in the home.
