Getting enough magnesium......

Magnesium oxide is the common pill form available, but is poorly absorbed. Mg citrate is better, and I can find with some searching. Much easier source is concoction of carbonated water and milk of magnesia. Recipes can be googled.

I have read that all the "bone building" drugs can never be stopped due to rebound spontaneous fractures. If you stop one drug you have to start another to prevent this from happening. I conversed with a lady in another group that lost molars due to fosamax weakening her jaw bone.

I would never take the "bone building" drugs. The quality of bone with them is very poor, fragile, porous, and prone to fracture.

Eating dairy may protect aging bones

https://www.dietdoctor.com/eating-d...ect-aging-bones

Since August 5, 2020 I let go of the limits on dairy with a Keto plan and now feel so much better! Minor symptoms like thin hair, brittle nails, are maybe due to better thyroid function, but more calcium may have also played a role. I now eat more green vegetables, yogurt, fermented cottage cheese, and realized how much I missed them. Ted Naiman has said in interviews that women often have a hard time getting enough protein with meats and fish, but low fat dairy and whey protein powder is more digestible. I was raised on a small dairy farm, so obviously I have the genetic background to do well with it. Before you limit dairy to break a "stall", be sure it is not the fat that should be limited. According to Marty Kendall's research, "People following a low carb diet typically get less vitamin K1, folate, calcium, Vitamin A, vitamin C and magnesium while they will be getting plenty of vitamin B12 and amino acids " I didnít start off monitoring all the micronutrients, but the foods I ate likely fixed these slight imbalances, definitely calcium.

New article from Mark Sisson, Maintaining Bone Density as you Age. No surprise, not a drug but food and exercise.
Part of the reason I feel healthier now, eating more nutrient dense foods, is by having increased protein and collegen, adding back fermented dairy and lots of vegetables, after having limited those for a decade on low carb. How I increased the bone density supporting nutrition Sisson lists is in my success story...all with Food, not supplements, with the exception of Vit D in the winter.
