    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
