Is reclast a safe treatment for osteoporosis I have not done anything so far except strontium citrate
Liked by Merry, Volunteer Mentor
I am actively and urgently in the process of deciding which osteoporosis treatment I want to "pitch" to my doctors. Fosomax is the formulary for my HMO, but that does not appeal to me at all. I feel that I need something that is shown to rebuild bone (15 lumbar and thoracic vertebral compression fractures). Initially Forteo was top contender (refrigeration requirement is an issue) until I came across Tymlos (refrigeration being easier to manage is one of several benefits over Forteo). Can and should treatments such as these be used in conjunction with strontium citrate, about which I know nothing by the way? Any feedback to help me through this maze will be highly appreciated

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis several months ago, but haven't started treatment. My Dr. doesn't want to put me on bisphosphonates because I have GCA and digestive issues. Someone on another forum posted this study and I'm going to run it by him. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/221793012_Combination_of_Micronutrients_for_Bone_COMB_Study_Bone_Density_after_Micronutrient_Intervention
@dawnmarie Welcome to this wonderful group .Im glad to hear about this research .I,ve had Osteopenia for more then 7 yrs.and I do follow all the Vitamin-Mineral that are recommended.Dont know where my other post went so this is a replacement
@lioness Thanks for the welcome and responding! I'm curious if you had any side effects from the recommended vitamins and minerals and how you found this treatment. I've been taking V D3, K2, magnesium glycinate and eating salmon without any issues. Don't want to add any more prescription meds to my long list.
@dawnmarie I haven't had any side effects . The Vitamin-Mineral are all naturel Ive been on Vitamin-Mineral s all my life I dont take the strontium as this is new to me so I just stay on what I know works for me but I also do wall presses instead of bench press this strengthens the back bones being active all my life Also like you I eat wild caught salmon no farm fresh fish 🐟.Since I have fibromyalgia my magnesium is higher of then most that I take.Old saying if it ain,t broke dont fix it.
