Ek was gediagnoseer met osteoperose nadat ' n tweede beendigtheids toets gedoen is. My dokter het Osteobon 70 vir my voorgeskryf. Ongelukkig soos gewoonlik is daar doem profete wat se dit het baie newe effekte en ek moet dit nie drink nie. Ek drink ook medikasie vir artritus. Ek is 60 jaar jonk. Ons woon in Limpopo ver van enige groot stad en spesialiste. Help asseblief. Dankie
