← Return to Prolia treatment for osteoporosis: What is your experience?

@contentandwell the natural approach works if you are under 30 and still building bone (there should be a huge emphasis on prevention during those bone building years). Once you are in the osteoporosis stage and of a certain age it's not going to work partly because of that imbalance in the bone remodeling process that comes with age. (Although you do need adequate daily amounts of calcium and vit d and my doctor said make sure you get enough protein). Also, at least the prescription meds undergo rigorous testing.
My doctor is always emphasizing resistance exercise and balance exercises. I fail in that regard.
Two words: don't fall.

For all of us who are the drug-sensitive types, treatment is challenging.

@sue225. That makes sense. I have been reading the book “Strong Women Strong Bones” and that has made me aware that in your 30s you really need to doing things to preserve your bones, My daughter is in her 30s, petite, and her main exercises are walking and swimming, neither of which are very helpful in making strong bones. I intend to buy the book for her.
I am taking calcium, D3, and K. I need to keep track of how much calcium I get from food sources so I don’t overdo it. From what I understand, too much calcium can cause hypercalcemia which can actually weaken your bones! 1200 mg of calcium is the typical max.
I have used MyFitnessPal in the past to track nutrients when trying to lose weight. I’m going to have to get serious about using it to track calcium - you can choose which nutrients you want to track.
