This has probably been posted before, but I just found it elsewhere and thought it was really useful. It gives clear, but detailed, info on risk, types of osteoporosis, specific tests to assess bone turnover and regeneration etc. It answered many questions that I have tried to get answers to for a while now.

Thanks Momine. The link didn't work for me, but just pasting it in the addy bar did. Some great info in there, but some a bit technical for me to understand. There were some mentions there in relation to cancer tx's (chemotherapy) but I didn't see anything to do with AI's, unless it's referred to with a tech name. I did see a mention that bone changes are very slow, so perhaps that's ties in with only needing BDS's biannually.
