Bone Health Part 2: Osteoporosis Treatments

Join me to learn about osteoporosis treatments with bone health expert Dr. Joy Wu.
We discuss lifestyle and medications that can halt bone loss, or even help rebuild bone. Dr. Wu also sheds light on the biology of bone and some of the factors that inform the optimal treatment for each patient.
Dr. Wu is a board-certified endocrinologist who specializes in osteoporosis and other bone mineral diseases. She treats patients and leads cutting-edge research at Stanford University, where she is Chief of the Division of Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism and Vice Chair of Basic Science in the Department of Medicine.
This episode is the second of a two-part conversation. In part one, we discuss osteoporosis prevention.
