So far I've been taking various OTC supplements only - none of the many prescription treatments. My T score has moved from -5.0 in 2017 to -4.3 recently. My doctor now thinks I should start some treatment, but I'm hesitant because of the many potential side effects. I'm wondering if anyone here has been taking treatments and happy with them regarding side effects. I would like very much to hear what treatments and what level of success any of you are having that might influence my decision… read more
To dear Pura, I would say no more than 1500 mg calcium a day and half that of magnesium and only 250 mg of calcium at any one time and also kefir cuts down on risk of fractures by 81% and plain yogurt and my grandmother lived on bone broth and was run right over by a car at age 85 and never broke or fractured a bone. You can get Organika chicken bone broth in powder form and make a hot drink or make it from stewing bones. I take probiotics which do help bone a lot. I find omega 3 fish oils are helping the osteoarthritis in my back as before I could only stand for 7 minutes from the pain and now I stand over 2 hours doing dishes with no pain at all. I think omega 3 fish oils help inflammation and that is what is involved with any kind of arthritis.
I am 71 years old and I don't know my t scores as my doctor hasn't done a bone density test for about 5 years but I had a couple of falls and did not fracture or break anything. but years ago I did get over osteoporosis in about 6 months just taking calcium and magnesium. If you like I can tell you what I took as originally my doctor said I put on 20% of my bone after the bone density test and my doctor did ask me what I was doing to put on the bone as she said she never saw a case like mine. I would be glad to tell you what to take. I have been studying nutrition since age 16 and am 71 now and all the doctors tell me I am in excellent shape for my age. I study about 10 hours a day.
I have gotten over things they say there is no cure for. Even fibromyalgia and I know a man who got out of his walker and over osteoporosis a bad case of it just by eating plain natural yogurt every day for about 6 months as it is a probiotic and has a T factor in it that stimulates the bone marrow and in turn strengthens the bone. I take Stonehenge probiotics every day and they are great. There are many other things too that help bone. Let me know if you want I can send you a message what to take.
Thanks you Denise - I agree with you and actually I follow a similar routine, I just didn't mention everything in my original comments. May I ask your age and also what your T scores were originally and what they are now plus how long it took to get over your severe osteoporosis? I'm inclined to continue my existing routine and not take any of the treatments recommended by my doctor for concern over the possible side effects.
Dear Barberetta and others, If this is any help to you I take calcium and magnesium tablets each day no more than 1500 mg calcium a day and half that of magnesium and only 250 mg of calcium at any one time and plain yogurt and kefir is so good it cuts down the risk of fractures by 81% and probiotics and vitamin E and vitamin D3 Try to get the stonehenge probiotics as they are the best. I know a man who got out of his walker for good and over osteoporosis just by eating plain natural yogurt every day for 6 months as it has a T factor in it that stimulates the bone marrow and in turn strengthens the bone. If you are taking calcium tablets do take magnesium with it. My doctor called me in to ask what I was doing as I got over my severe osteoporosis 100% and she said she never saw anything like that in the history of her practice.
