Some First Steps

If you have been recently diagnosed, here are some ideas about where to begin:

  • Educate yourself: Learn all you can about osteoporosis. Osteoporosis Canada operates a toll-free information line. Information counsellors discuss your concerns, send appropriate information and, if there is one, refer you to a Chapter or support group near you.
  • Our web site is also full of useful information. Consider adding your name to COPN the Canadian Osteoporosis Patient Network. They publish a regular newsletter with helpful tips and information on living with osteoporosis.
  • Review your treatment options with your doctor. You have several choices.
  • Review necessary lifestyle changes with your doctor as well.
  • Ask your doctor to refer you to other professionals. Although your physician is your primary medical resource, there is a wide range of professionals who can be involved in helping you care for your bones.
