Fosamax Osteoporosis Causes and Reviews


Osteoporosis is a disease that thins and weakens the bones. Your bones become fragile and break easily, especially the bones in the hip, spine, and wrist. In the United States, millions of people either already have Osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone mass.

Anyone can develop Osteoporosis, but it is more common in older women. Risk factors include

  • Getting older
  • Being small and thin
  • Having a family history of Osteoporosis
  • Taking certain medicines
  • Being a white or Asian woman
  • Having low bone density

Osteoporosis is a silent disease. You might not know you have it until you break a bone. A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health.

To keep bones strong, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise, and do not smoke. If needed, medicines can also help. It is also important to try to avoid falling down. Falls are the number one cause of fractures in older adults.

Fosamax Osteoporosis Reviews

Wed, 17 Nov 2010
I feel swollen and feel fatter since starting Fosamax.Weight gain is maybe three lbs but eyes are puffy and face seems swollen. I plan to see my doctor this week. I don't want my Osteoporosist to get worse so will most likely stay on it but a diuretic may help.
