Osteoporosis treated with magnesium lactate.
33 patients with senile, 18 patients with postmenopausal and 9 patients with medicamentous (corticosteroids) osteoporosis were treated with single therapy of Mg lactate (37 patients) and with the combined one of Mg lactate and Na fluoride (23 patients). They were evaluated in three periods of half a year, one year, two years. The better results were achieved with the single therapy than with the combined one and in the senile and postmenopausal osteoporosis than in the medicamentous one. Pain and restricted spine movement were influenced favourably. Kyphosis and x-ray findings were stabilized.
