Healthy Bones Healthy Body by Lara Pizzorno
I just discovered a new book published in 2022 titled Healthy Bones Healthy Body. I began reading it today but am already excited about it- Check it out. Then let me know what you think.

Just got my results from the CTX blood test. I'm 58 diagnosed with Osteoporosis. My score was 1159. My PROCOLLAGEN TYPE I INTACT N TERMINAL PROPEPTIDE was 217. Can you let me know what that means? I just started Tymlos and have been on it for a little more than a month.
Sorry. I don't know. I was diagnosed by a score from the DXA scan. It might be in the book I just started. I'll check.
skanter2, R. Keith McCormick wrote a book called Great Bones (published in 2023). In this book he talks about bone marker tests (pgs 144-145). He provides the ranges and what the high/low numbers mean. Was your CTX and P1NP taken before starting Tymlos as a baseline? Or were these tests taken after starting Tymlos? The answer to this will be a more accurate understanding of what your CTX & P1NP numbers mean. You can buy the book on Amazon. It is a really good resource. Well worth the cost in my opinion.
These results were one month AFTER beginning Tymlos. CTx was not tested as a baseline before meds.
