Have had seven prolia injections. Have a very long history of high cholesterol. Prolia probably caused my high cho higher and reversed the ratio of good hdl to bad ldl. Not able to tolerate statins. However, for last two years+ taking Repatha, a biologic which I inject 2x a month. My cholesterol numbers are lower now than when I was in my late 40s. Now in my 60s. I needed to treat my cho anyway.
And my bone density has improved.
By the way, I’m on Forteo, a daily self injection for 1-2 years. Effective with fewer side effects.
