2. Mineral Supplements
A lack of minerals in the diet isn’t the only nutritional deficiency that can be behind a diagnosis of osteomalacia; there is also a range of different minerals that can be lacking in your diet that could be causing it. The most common minerals that apply to this are the ones that are directly related to bone health and the formation of new, healthy bone – when you have osteomalacia, the body lacks these essential vitamins and minerals that allow the bone to heal, grow and strengthen, leading to what’s called ‘soft bones.’
Mineral supplements and the inclusion of calcium-rich foods in your diet can be a good way to improve your health in general, and it’s also one of the essential treatments for osteomalacia. Specific calcium supplements are available over the counter, though take care of multi-vitamins and supplements containing several types of minerals until you’re sure the condition has healed.
