Lotsa, I'm no doctor so of course, please don't take anything I say as gospel LOL. I have a somewhat jaundiced view of medicine because of my experiences. Anyway, I hope your mom starts to feel better!

Does she exercise and drink milk or eat dairy (for the calcium and vit. D?)

Hope you are doing well.
