The major risk factors
that influence peak bone mass and bone loss, such as genetics, nutritional intake (calcium, vitamin D, and protein), exercise,
adverse lifestyle practices (e.g., smoking), sex hormone levels, diseases, and medications, are similar between men and women.[31- 35]

Osteoporosis is a global
public health problem. Worldwide, the lifetime risk for a woman to have an osteoporotic fracture is 30-40%; in men the risk
is about 13%. Advances in basic and applied research on bone biology have and continue to lead to a better understanding of
the role of diet and exercise for bone health, new therapies for protection against fracture, and new formulations of standard
Potassium, magnesium, and fruit and vegetable intakes

By: Sheryl Follin Vondracek; Laura B. Hansen
Osteoporosis is an almost
universal consequence of osteogenesis imperfecta. The goal of osteoporosis therapy in individuals with osteogenesis
imperfecta, involves two main concerns: increasing bone density at every age and minimizing bone loss that occurs as a result
of aging. The strategies for prevention and treatment of osteoporosis among people with osteogenesis imperfecta are
the same as those strategies for the rest of the population!
Because osteoporosis manifests the
same symptoms- as osteogenesis imperfecta men and women fracturing, I feel that any man or woman that has Osteoporosis should consider
being on bio-identical hormones and a lifestyle medicine program.
Natural hormones tend to be broken down by the stomach acid and are poorly absorbed from the gut,
because of this problem methyltestosterone (a testosterone conjugate) was developed. This form of testosterone has a better
absorption profile but must go through the liver for activation. This activation step is thought to increase the risk of side
My pharmacy uses natural micronized testosterone that they complex in a unique lipid matrix tablet which helps
protect the testosterone from degradation in the stomach and produces reproducible blood levels. They have compounded testosterone
tablets in various strengths to meet the needs of the individual patient as well as all the other hormones.
