Question from Nikole: Has there ever been a case in history where someone was diagnosed with osteoporosis and then had a complete recovery to where the disease was completely gone?
Answers - Charles Shapiro I would think not. The disease can be improved with lifestyle and medication changes, but I would say return to the normal bone density when you've had osteoporosis, severe bone loss, would be unusual.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Keeping Your Bones Strong featured Charles L. Shapiro, M.D. and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answering your questions about how to measure the strength of your bones, how to find out your risk for osteoporosis, and what you can do to lower that risk.
