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 second opinion) suggests that with my younger age (and I am active) and the severity… 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.

Drink Metamucil every day along with supplements. No problems for me. No drugs

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.

How Can I Get Off Prolia SAFELY?

How Can I Get Off Prolia SAFELY?

I had been on Prolia about 6 years. It wasn't helping much but at least I wasn't getting worse
Then because of a change in medical personnel at the center where I got it, there was a brief delay about 4 weeks or so) in getting my shot. There were no warnings about the danger of delay; I was just told my appointment would be later when the new doctor was available, and there were no warnings in Amgen's info to alert me. As a result I suffered three vertebral fractures and have been disabled… read more

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 situation. I am tempted to do this because I would like an expert's viewpoint on whether… read more
