Oct 11, 2018 · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

there are alot of posts with different information and we know Prolia is different for every person. I have posted here on the same issue. I have been working out for over 1 1/2 years. At the one year mark, I had my bone density done. It is a -2.5. My workouts have halted the progression of osteoporosis in my spine! No, it will not rebuild bone but no one can tell me how sturdy that rebuilt bone is. Some people have rebound fractures. I will take my chances with exercise, adding vitamin K2, magnesium to my diet.

Sep 24, 2018 · Gastroparesis Diet Questions in Digestive Health

I was diagnosed with gastroparesis by doing a stomach emptying testing. I am going on 2 years with it and luckily no vomiting. My doctor wanted me to take gabepetin but I said no because of the side effects. She then recommended Iberogast. It is for stomach motility issues and so far it works. All natural. I buy it at a nutrition store like Vitamin Shop or GNC but this store is a locally owned one. You can get it on Amazon. I just add the drops to any liquid I drink with a meal. But I also don't overeat. I don't eat anything I shouldn't because I don't want besoars. And I drink Equate Plus with 13 grams of protein and vitamins and minerals. You can buy it at Walmart. It is the same as Ensure but cheaper and was recommended by a dietician. My over the counter vitamins are mostly gel caps to make it easier for my stomach to digest. I also get coughing spells after I eat so i chew a stick of sugar-less gum and it works! I hardly ever eat beef unless it ground beef. I cut most of the saturated fat out of my diet. And I started exercising. I have also found out that if you exercise or just walk for 10 minutes after you eat, it helps your stomach to process the food.

Please see some of my posts. @veriska can you help with that? It is my understanding that most posts I have read don't guarantee new bone growth. If it does, it is only while you are taking Prolia. BUT you cannot be on it long term. Then you have to switch to something like Boniva, etc. (which I cannot take because it makes my kidney disease worse. So in my estimation, Prolia only buys you some time. If you stop it, some people have noticed a rebound in the disease.

Here is an excerpt is taken from Prolia's insert: "5.6 multiple vertebral fractures (mvf) following discontinuation of prolia treatment
Following discontinuation of Prolia treatment, fracture risk increases, including the risk of multiple vertebral fractures. Cessation of Prolia treatment results in markers of bone resorption increasing above pretreatment values then returning to pretreatment values 24 months after the last dose of Prolia. In addition, bone mineral density returns to pretreatment values within 18 months after the last injection. [see Pharmacodynamics (12.2) and Clinical Studies (14.1)]. New vertebral fractures occurred as early as 7 months (on average 19 months) after the last dose of Prolia. Prior vertebral fracture was a predictor of multiple vertebral fractures after Prolia discontinuation. Evaluate an individual’s benefit/risk before initiating treatment with Prolia.If Prolia treatment is discontinued, consider transitioning to an alternative antiresorptive therapy [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)]." If I'm going back to pretreatment values and I've risked my body for this, all I've done is POSSIBLY extended the period of time where my bones are not breaking down.

Well, iberogast helps my stomach process my food faster. Probably not at the rate it did without gastroparesis but I do not vomit, luckily. And I only felt nauseous and bloated once when I drank a whole glass of fountain Pepsi. Can't do that. It won't hurt you and just might help. Try a small bottle and see how you do. My gastroenterologist just prescribed it to my son who is 51 and has the same disease. Is this stuff heredity???
