This was some years ago.
At one time since starting the supps a GP in my practice suggested I stopped taking them (as the poor density seemed to have been resolved).
However, after I stopped the supps & had a routine DEXA scan -to check that my bone density was still ok- it turned out that I again had osteopenia.
So, now I still take the calcium + Vit D supps and, at the moment, am having regular calcium checks (as a biweekly outpatient for chemo treatment).
The medics have upped my usual 1 calcium tablet twice a day to 2 tabs twice daily to make sure calcium level is maintained.
These tablets have to be chewed (or crushed & sprinkled on eg yogurt) because they are rather large but I reckon they taste like Edinburgh Rock (which I like) so I don't mind taking them.
I also have low-dose HRT (1/2 patch, changed twice a week) which I started just before menopause (to help preserve bones, didn't realise then that I had CD).
Not doing much exercise at the moment but was recommended 'bone jarring exercise' by NHS dietitian as good for improving & keeping my bone density
