Welcome to IBones

There is no medical treatment for OI. However, judicious use of intravenous and oral bisphosphonates have found to reduce the incidence of fractures. Cyclical Pamidronate and Zolendronic are given every four months to maintain the bone strength. Dietary supplements like calcium and Vit D3 are also given to supplement nutrition. Exercises and physical activity are useful to maintain muscle strength.

In certain types of OI, where the disease is very severe, only supportive treatment may be possible.
