I read in a book last night that over a 10 year period,
your bones are replaced over a 10 year period. Does that mean that
people who have osteoporosis, if they receive a medication that somehow
contributes to strengthening their bones, that over a 10 year period,
they may increase their bone density to normal?
I do not think so....at least not yet. The current drugs only slow the
normal aging process of bone loss down.
