Has Someone In The Medical Field Acted Like Your Diagnosis Of Osteoporosis Is NOT A Big Deal?

Has Someone In The Medical Field Acted Like Your Diagnosis Of Osteoporosis Is NOT A Big Deal?

In March 2020 I had a mental health issue & was in the hospital 2 weeks. When out I had a wellness (mental health) councilor from a senior center for about 8 months. We had sessions on phone once a week for an hour. It helped. Now about a month after osteoporosis diagnosis while I was scared to death, very concerned about what that meant, what would happen to my body, Dr told me nothing - did he know anything? I wasn't sleeping well, my blood pressure was up. I called that councilor & told her… read more

When we are having health issues, we need to write our questions down that we are going to ask the doctor, either on the phone or in the office. If the doctor can't or won't give you answers, then it might be time to change doctors. When I had a bad HMO insurance, I had many bad doctors that didn't know or didn't care. That is one of the big reasons I now pay for my healthcare PPO Medicare and Supplement.

I know fosamax is not good but the worst thing you could do is take calcum and vitamin D without magnesium Docrors receice less than 4 hours training in nutrition. Without magnesium you won't aborb calcium at all even from foods.

Dear London and others, You ladies are the best thing that ever happened to me. I finally have a good psychiatrist for bi polar as mine is severe and all the doctors say I am a genius when it comes to medical things and nutrition but there is a thin line between genius and insanity. Even the Liver Foundation is sending my material onto their expertis in the field and the hospital Mt. Sinai interviewed me asking me all sorts of questions and my late husband was the same bi polar and a genius. I have a friend who worked 8 years in medical research at Mt. Sinai and other hospitals and with many doctors and she said she was very impressed with my knowledge and that I was so smart. I have had neurologists ask my advice and many other doctors and specialists. My psychiatrist one of the best said if people don't want me it is their loss. At 14 years I was an accomplished violinist had my picture in the paper played in numerous orchestras. I think if God had not been with me I would never have made it. I had terrible bone pain and started on vitamin D and it helped me a lot and still take it and it has a direct connection with bi polar disorder. Sorry to ramble on but I am so impressed with you lovely ladies. My family doctor did ask me some time ago how I got over osteoporosis as she never saw anything like that before so maybe that is why she is not bothering to do anything for me as she sees I already was able to help myself. Calcium and magnesium is one of the best things you can take for osteoporosis and pain and insomnia. I will say a little prayer for all of you today.

London, I also find that when I tell people, work associates, some friends. They really don’t comprehend the seriousness of it, or maybe don’t even believe what I’m saying. Making me feel like it’s me against the world…In this alone.
So yes, it is nice to find people who understand and who are walking this walk.

I get frustrated by all the info I hear on how to's for bone loss. Dr Berry says don't take calcium supplements, we don't need them. They cause kidney stones, heart disease, and cancer. Don't drink cows milk. Best to do is weight baring exercises to strengthen bones Take vit D those meds like prolia and fosomax are no good for you fats are good for ya carbs aernt best way is your diet eat dark leafy greens. Well, its the strength of your bones that's important over density.
