Hi Seetha Apologies for the delay in replying-Maybe you can rather phone me at the osteoporosis foundation - I need some more info. Also- Fosavance is used in the treatment of established osteoporosis- not in osteopenia. Also- with your small frame you already start of with have less bone which is probably quite normal for you and I would not recommend active therapy at this stage, but to rather continue with your diet and exercise regimen and to evaluate your bone density in 18 months time. You seem to be doing all the right things with regards to your bone health- calcium citrate is better absorbed but more expensive and less readily available than the carbonate. I know too little about your iron therapy to make an intelligent comment.
