Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

Again thank you for all your replies.

Is there another term for the bone specialists ladybug? I have tried searching those terms but seem to just get endocrinologists who list bone disorders in their list of specialities as a standard endo.

It is very frustrating. I wonder about OI. The thing is, I never typically was one of those kids prone to breaking bones. I once broke my collar bone from a large fall ~ 3m. But was a very active kid and had many other accidents with no trouble. It is just the rib fractures in the past year which lead me to get a bone scan. I am also part Pacific Islander, who are supposed to have some of the most dense bones around!

I have decided to take my time in making a decision. I have ordered "Your Bones" and am going to talk to a specialist bone researcher at my university who specialises in creating anabolic aids for osteo and has worked on things such as lactoferrin.
