Weak bone- Need to strengthen : Plz help

In a bone density test, my bones are resulted to be weaker. They are at the stage of Osteopenia the stage before Osteoporosis I guess. I really want to strengthen my bones. I know that I need to increase the content of calcium in my bone. Kindly advise the food I should have everyday to strengthen my bone.
Also is there any medicine available to increase the bone strength.

Hi there!

Aside increased calcium intake it is also important to get your vitamin D levels checked. Taking plenty of fruits and vegetables would also be helpful. There are a few medications that might be helpful in building up bone mass; however these should only be taken after advice and written prescription by a doctor. I would suggest consulting your treating doctor for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
