    Have you had to make lifestyle changes since your diagnosis?

    Since your diagnosis of osteoporosis what lifestyle changes have you had to make?

    Have the changes been a difficult or relatively easy transition?

    Tomato05 responded:
    Easy changes: I started taking supplements like calcium, vit D and fish oil.

    I started exercising 5 times a week - I have always found it enjoyable, so I would classify that as "easy": although the exercise itself is never really easy, the lifestyle change has been.

    Another lifestyle change is to eat healthier, which has probably been the most difficult, and I still struggle to replace candy with healthier things! Luckily I also eat a lot of vegetables and lean protein. Not eating enough dairy though.
