Okay Rene so there is a valid reason for no infusions. Others on this site have fantastic ways to help strengthen your bones. Hopefully they will jump in with ideas. Vit D is essential, my Endocrinologist put me on the correct dose. Calcium needs to be monitored if there are kidney issues. Vit K2 is good for directing calcium to the bones from the blood. Do your research and consider seeing an Endocrinologist. You will find help so don’t give up. 🌺

It often upsets the stomach. I have a difficult stomach so have the annual infusion of Reclast instead.

ReneCossett.
Is your kidney healthy and functioning well ? If so why would you not be able to have Reclast? I have the infusions and knowing a side effect is urinary tract infections I take cranberry tablets and drink 2 litres of room temperature water every day.
So far so good. Hugs xx

Helen I wish I could have Recast. I had it once it worked really well. I’m not able to have it again because I only have one kidney.
