Hi. I’m new to the site and am interested in treating osteoperosis. I’m 39 yo and recently had a bone density that showed I’m at -2.4. So, going through the intial “I can’t believe it” stuff. 🙂

I have taken both Forteo & Prolia. I have necrosis of the jaw probably from years of Fosomax, Boniva etc. Had my 1 st Prolia injection 6 mos ago & may discontinue d/t significant constipation. Had some back pain in the first month or so. Both of these symptoms are a puzzle to my MD as she has never heard of anyone having these although the Prolia website says these are the two most common reasons people discontinue. All this is very discouraging.

Since I 've been on Prolia, (2 injections, 1 full year) my longstanding irritable bowel-C (constipation) has become quite dreadful. Coincidental? My followup appt is next week, so I will let the endocrinologist know and see what she says. I also noticed that constipation is listed as a common side effect.

You can cure osteoporosis in several ways. The protein, calcium, vitamin D and exercise can treat your osteoporosis.

@johnduo32 cure and treat are two very different words.

@bonnieh218, you are quite right. There is an important distinction between words like cure, treat and manage.
