How Did You Choose Your Treatment?
A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

I went against my endo's recommendation and choose what I thought to be the least invasive drug with the fewest side effects after I was unable to take Fosamax. I am currently taking Evista, Ca and Vit D but I am scheduled for my second bone scan. I am hoping to have made progress but my doctor is not hopeful. He wants me to choose between Forteo and Tymlos. He says I am not building bone and these are the best options for this issue. I don't want to take any of these drugs because of all the… read more

Fortes Injections
A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

My Endocrinologist wants me to take Forteo for 2 years by injection everyday as a bone builder. I am eligible through the Government as I had A femoral fracture due to the medication I was taking. My Doctor has to make application on my behalf to put me on the program. Side effects dizziness, leg cramps, soreness due to the injections. I would like your input on this program. Thank you.

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take
A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm afraid of doing anything except walking and swimming for fear of hurting myself, but I get bored with these. My osteoporosis is mild in my spine and moderate in my hips. I've had two crush fractures. My back can be extremely painful. I've tried Pilates and yoga, but some of the excersises really hurt my upper back, so I end up not doing anything! I used to love cycling, but I've lost all my confidence and can't balance anymore as I'm so scared of falling off.

Calcium And Vitamin D
A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

Calcium supplements cause constipation for me and since I have had issues with this due to a bowel obstruction surgery, as well as IBS with fibromyalgia, more of that issue I really don't need. Is there any calcium product that is less constipating? I do take 3000mg vit D and 200 mg Magnesium daily and eat a lot of calcium rich foods.
