  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Since having been diagnosed with osteoporsis, becoming very bent over due to not having the strength to hold up. Luckily no pain but concerned that the muscle weakness is making condition much worse. Age 91 but otherwise fit and strong spirit to live life. Concerned that muscles are becoming weaker de to mix of medications? Advice would be gratefully received-many thanks
