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 been prescribed by a medical doctor and find it helps with anxiety, pain and elevates my mood. It is also reportedly promotes bone growth. I am still taking my Actonel but have been on CBD since June, 2018.
I find after my day of housework I am exhausted by 4 pm and ready for bed by 7pm. Anyone experiencing this could u share. Feeling so alone. My spouse gets so tired of me being tired so early in the evening!!
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.
I have numerous toes becoming hammer toes. I wonder if this condition adds to the pain in these feet?

If anyone has had success with an increase in bone density with a natural product please let me know what it was and the company you got it from. The same for if there were specific diet and exercises you did. If they have helped with pain that would be helpful too.
Has anyone on Prolia experienced a significant increase in their LDL numbers? I have always had high cholesterol and was unable to tolerate statins. My cholesterol numbers increased over and above what was already not good after two months on Prolia. The endocrinologist was surprised at this rapid increase and in his report to my family doctor said, "maybe it is caused by Prolia". I am now on Repatha, (another biologic manufactured by Amgen) to lower my cholesterol. I needed to… read more
