Osteo help

Hello all,

Over the past 5 years, my extremely fit and healthy 77 year old mother has been doing all she can to curb her osteoperosis diagnosis in her spine and improve her bone density scores (Actonel/Fosamax, calcium, D, healthy diet, exercise, etc.). For awhile, her scores were getting better - recently, however, she is back at around the levels she started (below). Any advice on what to do next? (i.e. try a different med, take more calcium & D? different exercises? Foods?). Thanks to all in advance!

Hips/Femur T-Score: -2.2
Spine T-Score: - 3.2

Hips/Femur T-Score: -1.4
Spine T-Score: -2.7

Hips/Femur T-Score -1.6
Spine T-Score -2.6

Hips/Femur T-Score -1.7
Spine T-Score -3.0
