OIFE had a nice informal meeting with the International Osteoporosis Foundation in Nyon, Switzerland. One of the shared interests for people with OI and the more common osteoporosis is to eat healthy. Even if it’s not a cure, it is even more important for us to eat healthy,

OI varies in severity from person to person, ranging from a mild type to a severe type that causes death before or shortly after birth.
