Serve up Bone Strength throughout your life
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,
to keep our bones as good as they can get.
