I have bad teeth--I receive regular dental care and floss and brush with prescription strength fluoride toothpaste like I'm supposed to, but I have numerous crowns/fillings, 4 implants, I've had several root canals and broken teeth.

Is Anyone Else Taking Prolia With Side Effects?

Is Anyone Else Taking Prolia With Side Effects?

I started Prolia two years ago because Actonel wasn’t working. I now have recurring sciatica, which is a side effect of Prolia. A year ago I got cortisone injection for pain.

I also take medicine for acid reflux which counteracts bone density medicine.

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

Alendronate Or Alendronic Acid

Alendronate Or Alendronic Acid

It’s improved my bone density somewhat and the Endocrinologist at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital was pleased that my Lumbar spine is now Osteopinea, wrists and hips are not so good.
I am concerned about the stomach bloating and constipation of my bowel.
