Format: Paperback
I first read this book about six months ago. I found it through a search at my Milwaukee Public Library. After looking at about 10 books I found this very comprehensive with a good glossary and index.
We women think we have read and understand osteoporosis until some one close to you has been found to have the disease and the comments are this is the worst I have ever seen. This from an 85 year old woman who raised chickens and sold eggs on a farm up until 30 years ago and then retired to town. It is not believed that any Dr. recommended that she take calcium or any other preventitive measure. In fact she fell 18 months ago breaking a wrist and no one even thought to do a bone scan at that time. Thanks to my sister-in-law she demanded a bone scan prior to surgery to replace a knee.
This book discusses medicine and what you need to do - exercise and medication to turn the bone density around. Up until reading this I had no idea that the density could be reversed. I also see this in other recent conference notes etc.
We ordered this book for all of my mother-in-laws sons and today I am sad to say that my sister, who also has spent all of her life on a farm has osteoporosis and part of a blind osteoporosis 10 year study (she is not going to participate any longer as she feels she will be to busy getting well,) at a pretty high level so I am ordering the book for her.
