Prolia only adds density to yr bones does not repair it. You need quality not quantity. Google doctor Ken Berry see what he has to say about meds

How Did You Choose Your Treatment?

How Did You Choose Your Treatment?

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

Does it work? Has anyone ever heard of this....that calcium pills are just ground up rock? Can we digest this? Will this clog my arteries?

Fortes Injections

Fortes Injections

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.

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take

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.

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

That's me. I recently had physical therapy to strengthen my leg muscles, but I still have a bad knee on the right and a bad ankle on the left, so I can't do any sports type stuff. Of course. I was… read more

Calcium And Vitamin D

Calcium And Vitamin D

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.

Are you on Thyroid medicine ? I am told by my doctor 12 years ago, She said don't supplement with Calcium unless it is in the food you eat or Bone broth etc. She put me on Magnesium and Vitamin D-3… read more
