I'm 28 and have osteopenia because of the steroids. It's honestly not high on my list of concerns. That's maybe stupid of me, but I've got much bigger fish to fry with this disease. I take Vitamin D and Calcium, and that's about all I can do for now. I get as much exercise as i can, and honestly, I'm just a lot more worried about my Crohn's.
