I watched a segment on Youtube by a Doctor who claims that Prolia prevents osteoclasts from clearing away the old bone and subsequently the osteoblasts form new bone on old bones which makes them more brittle. He claims that research indicates that if this medication is take for five or more years there will be a higher risk of bone fracture.
I wouldn't have Prolia - you can do a lot yourself by weight bearing exercise and eating heaps of vegetables and salads which are alkalising foods and lessen your intake of acidic foods, which are your meat, chicken, etc.
Fish and dairy are also acidic, but you just need more of the alkalising foods.
I work out three days a week at my gym for one and a half hours each time.
After seven years of this I have the knees of a 40 year old - my scans show it! I am nearly 76 plus I walk every day with the dogs.
My doc told me I can't stop Prolia I have to have "a bridge drug because quitting increases risk of fracture which I did not know until a few weeks ago. I never would have started on Prolia if I knew then what I know now.
Sorry Suzanne, just saw post. All vegetables and greens are alkalising foods and unfortunately, all meat, chicken, dairy and fish are acidic. However, it's okay - we need to just lower the amount of these foods and increase the veg/greens ratio. Lemon, vinegar and also good.
I also get prolia injections no side effects also take ixprim for pain
