@jaleen, Well said! I have refused to take the biophosphates as well for three years, My now third endocronologist says that the 3-24 hr urine tests showed extremely excessive amounts of calcium loss in urine, (triple the % of a woman my age)! She cannot believe other endo’s didn’t address instead of just trying to push fosamax! ! I also have a rare immune deficiency that my B cells do not mature into antibodies. My body continues to reproduce B cells in my bone (thus overworking and potentially depleting the bone) to accommodate for lack of antibodies (b cells matured). I infuse plasma every week filled with antibodies to help ward off germs, bacteria’s, etc. The endo’s just don’t pursue CAUSE and treat cause,,,instead they throw the caustic drugs into our bodies to make up for the depleting bone density! Find & treat the cause, instead of trying to refill a tank with a hole in it!!Sorry your Dr was so rude, It is just tragic our medical industry is no longer a profession of care, or a yearn for investigation of causes that will possibly cure not harm the patient!
