Don’t have kids with someone who has it in their family history or has it.

The cause of the disease is a malfunctioning of the osteoclasts. The osteoclasts is a bone cell that helps keep the bones going by breaking down bone tissue. The cell is vital in maintenance, repair and remodeling of bones. It’s genetic also.

Osteoporosis nicknamed “marble bone disease” hardens and makes bones denser. The disease can cause bones to dissolve and break. The disease also leads to osteosclerosis

The most common treatment is a bone marrow transplant but if there are complications there has been a history of patients being treated with vitamin D and gamma interferon.
