Re: MS and Osteoporosis

Hi,
Sorry to hear your husband was diagnosed with osteoporosis. 1.0 is zero bone loss, T-scores -2.5 or higher osteoporosis. -3.0 to -4.0 mean more bone loss.
Is your husband ambulatory? Can he do weight bearing activities like walking. is suggested. What did his doctor recommend for treatment?
