Forteo--Teriparatide - should I or should I not-questioning the drug? Wondering about the bone cancer.

Forteo--Teriparatide - should I or should I not-questioning the drug? Wondering about the bone cancer.

I am 56. Osteoporosis runs in the family. I was diagnosed two years ago at the age of 54 with a T-Scan of -3.3 in the lower spine. I tried Fosmax and everything hurt and jumped off after a few months. At that time I discovered a wonderful gym here in Florida that has a bone building program. My T-Scan has remained the same after two years of working out and a change of diet. However, my doctor (and this is the… read more

I have heard that having a Prolia injection every 6 months is not the most effective treatment for osteoporosis. Not sure what to take this.

I have heard that having a Prolia injection every 6 months is not the most effective treatment for osteoporosis. Not sure what to take this.

I watched a segment on Youtube by a Doctor who claims that Prolia prevents osteoclasts from clearing away the old bone and subsequently the osteoblasts form new bone on old bones which makes them more brittle. He claims that research indicates that if this medication is take for five or more years there will be a higher risk of bone fracture.

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.

What is Osteoporosis 1 and Osteoporosis 2?

When I joined this site, the box asking for whether I had Osteoporosis I or Osteoporosis II did not show the end of the item. Can anyone explain to me what the difference is? My doctor has only ever identified it as Osteoporosis (in spine) and Osteopenia (in hips). Thanks.

Has anyone done a consultation with Susan Brown (Betterbones.com and Better Bones, Better Body author)?

Has anyone done a consultation with Susan Brown (Betterbones.com and Better Bones, Better Body author)?

After reading her book, I feel she has an incredible wealth of knowledge about how to help rebuild bone density with proper nutrition and exercise. On Betterbones.com, it shows you can consult with her ($325). It sounds like she will look at an individual's test results, review tests that have been done, discuss others that could be done, and provide insight and recommendations based on a person's unique… read more
