Thank you for reaching out to me. I’ll be happy to check out these links, and hear from others.
That is also what I know about TYMLOS, that detail is attractive to me. I have not been treated for osteoporosis before. Every two years, I went to radiology for bone density tests, each test progressively worse, not reaching osteoporosis til this year. Then I was referred to, Center for Osteoporosis, UCONN Musculoskeletal Institute. Come to find out in my spine I have 1or 2 vertebrae @ 3.4. After a urine test I was told I make bone at a normal rate, but lose it faster than I make it. Due to an unrelated chest X-ray, 2 more vertebrae were detected one crumbling, another almost. That’s my history in a nutshell. Now I’m trying to learn as much as I can. Once I hear back from my PCP, I asked for her opinion of TYMLOS, and want her to be aware I’ll be on it. This next week, I’ll know if my insurance will help with prescription costs, then shortly thereafter, I’ll begin treatment.

Hi, I am in Connecticut and just wondered which dr. you saw at UConn that prescribed Tymlos as I would like to try this route to help save my bones. Thank you!

I'm replying to this 4 years later to see what you choose and how you are doing. So many drop off the site when they have finished their course of tymlos/forteo. Would love to know how effective this was for you and how you fared.

Hi. I also live in CT. Can you tell me who you saw at Center for Osteoporosis, UCONN Musculoskeletal Institute? Where you happy with the outcome? Thanks.
