Osteoporosis and Celiac Disease

As a middle-aged male, osteoporosis was not even on my radar. However, it’s one of the significant risks for an adult celiac of any age or gender, especially if the disease has been active long enough to significantly damage the small intestine and cause nutritional deficiencies. I’ve had a bone density scan, though I don’t have the results yet. And I’m gathering additional information. I’m a sponge. When I want to learn about something, I tend to learn a lot and learn quickly. In this video, Dr. Vikki Petersen answers a question from a 34 year old woman with osteoporosis that is not getting better on a gluten free diet. That’s a concern, of course, after any diagnosis like this. What if you do everything “right” (or as well as you can) and your body still never fully recovers?
