The New York Times and Associated Press reported on February 25th that "Men as well as women need bone tests". For those who have been diagnosed with osteopenia, we've been told to increase load-bearing exercise and calcium intake. Some are even told to take Fosamax or other products to try to stem the loss of bone density. For those with IBD, this is typically due to having taken Prednisone, but in my case also because my body is skinnier than the "standard" for Americans of my age and height.
