Osteoporosis for 27y/Male
I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. My vitamin D levels are very low too. The doctor thinks I may have osteogenesis imperfecta as other possibilities have been ruled out. I have had no osteoporotic fracture and long bones X rays show no deformities. I am taking 1000mg calcium 2000IU D3. Pl. advise

You need to check your vit D & calcium level. Along with x ray to rule out osteogenesis imperfecta.
