I just got the copy of my none density. I have been on Prolia for 3-1/2 years. For the spine, my T-score increased from -2.8 to -2.3. The femoral neck and total femur did not change. I am now 59. I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the age of 41. At that time, my spine was -3.7, my femoral neck was -2.6, and my mean femur was -2.5. It has taken 17 years for me to see this type of increase. I have been on Fosomax, Forteo, Reclast, and Prolia. I saw the greatest increase during the two years that I was on Forteo. The problem with it for people on Medicare is that it's going to be covered on the prescription drug plan, and it's expensive. I don't know if the manufacturer has made any special deal for Medicare recipients. @smtant
