Osteoporosis TreatmentThe treatment of osteoporosis involves reducing any of the factors contributing to poor bone health. Your doctor may advise you to address current exercise regime, review your medications or review current lifestyle factors that predispose you to osteoporosis. Your doctor may also advise you to increase your: Calcium intake via your diet or with supplements. Calcium is used to build and maintain bone health. Vitamin D intake via supplements or exposure to low levels of sunlight. Vitamin D is used to absorb calcium in the bone and regulate calcium in the blood.

Nothing superior. Calcium is available in various forms , which is indicated for different reasons and for different populations as per requirement, for example we have Calcium Citrate, Calcium Citrate Malate, Calcium Carbonate, Calcium Orotate/Glycinate etc etc. Each has it's varied importance and necessity. Consult with me for further details. Good luck !

A hip fracture can cause hip pain, swelling or bruising, and the hip may look deformed. ... People usually have pain in the groin when they put weight on the hip. Walking or even standing can cause the fracture to spread, which may worsen the pain. In severe cases, a person with a hip fracture is in too much pain to move.

You know the cause and still you r trying to find a solution. Solution is in your hands only. Unless and until you do something for yourself Quit smoking asap. Its not only affecting your bones etc, lungs, mouth, teeth, tongue are all getting affected. Do favour to yourself and quit this habit.
