About bone density

Three year back I met a road accident while I was riding my bike. Then I had leg fractured and during treatment I knew about bone density. I had low density so doctor had prescribed some medicine. Now I want to improve this with help of my normal diet and wanted to go with some routine test to observe the improvement. I am a vegetarian so please suggest the suitable diet and what all test are available for bone density let me know.
