Re: Thyroid a factor for osteoperosis? I'm also on Strontium

Hi, i did some reading and found out more about the 127 lb. number. I was incorrect in the impact factor (altho i did read that some where years ago) but did read that petite and thin people (body weight less than 127 pounds) have a greater risk of developing osteoporosis because they have less bone to lose than people with more body weight and larger frames. You can read more by doing a search "127 lb. bone protection." Sorry for the confusion. take care, phyllis
