Posted in: Osteoporosis.

I am 75 and I have recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis ( -4.3 T score).
I'll see my doctor shortly for the overall assessment, but I'd like to know in general ( barring any restrictions due to interaction with other medications or physical conditions) if an osteoporotic person can go over the maximum daily dosage of 1200 mg ( including food sources and supplementation) required for a normal person.
I'd think that perhaps an osteoporotic person needs to take more calcium than a normal person, because he/she needs not just to keep bone density at the normal level , but to restore , therefore increase it .
I was also wondering what is the usual time span to see bone density increased with calcium supplementation and.( of course) proper exercise.: months, years?

Thanks

Ittiandro
