@nme1985 where does the -2.7 score come from? Hip? Your scores aren't too bad. Will your insurance cover Tymlos with those scores?

Many of us have tried Tymlos full dose, then regrouped and started at a lower dose and moved up as our bodies adjust. In fact, I had excellent gains with 6 or 7 clicks out of 8 on the pen (the pen is adjustable). You may do fine with full dose- most do. If you don't, you can try that strategy.

Hi there. Thank you for the quick response -2.7 is the spine. My L1 to L4 is -1.9. Total femur is -2.6. I think the insurance will cover it because I had such a terrible reaction to the actonel. I am so petrified. I see my endocrinologist next week and I will see what her suggestion is but I will definitely start maybe three times a week whether I have to pay for it or not. I have serious drug reactions, allergic to antibiotics, etc. etc. I’m pretty healthy except for scoliosis and it never bothered me, thank you for any advice you can give. I appreciate finding this group I was having anxiety attacks to be honest.
