Tue, Feb 18 12:50pm · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

If you aren't walking on a treadmill and you are walking outside on a hard surface, you might want to consider a treadmill. My physical therapist I go to for resistance training told me that. He won't even let me run on the treadmill.

the K2 is 100 MCG not mg. Big difference and I doubt you can buy K2 in mg doses anyway.

Yes. I had an appointment with Integrative Medicine and Health at Mayo. I was on it before I went and they went through all my prescriptions and over the counter vitamins and minerals. K2 was part of it and was approved.

To add to my post of 2 days ago. I went to Mayo and was evaluated. The vitamins I take to hopefully help my bones is: Vit D3 about 4000mg a day, K2 about 100mg a day and Magnesium. your bones need all of these.

Attached is my osteoporosis spreadsheet. Make one for yourself. This spreadsheet is from 1999. I am now 70. The T-score that they all use is based on a 32 year old's bone density. The Z score is based on your age. Hmmm. We all know that as you age from 30 on, we lose some bone. Some of us lose more bone at a faster rate as we all know. But look at how long it took you to get where you are right now. Before you take this drug or any injectable drug, get online and research it. Go to the Amgen website and review the tables there. This quote is taken from their medication guide. "• Increased risk of broken bones, including broken bones in the spine, after stopping Prolia. After your treatment with Prolia is stopped, your risk for breaking bones, including bones in your spine, is increased. Your risk for having more than 1 broken bone in your spine is increased if you have already had a broken bone in your spine. Do not stop taking Prolia without first talking with your doctor. If your Prolia treatment is stopped, talk to your doctor about other medicine that you
can take." So when you have to stop taking it at the 3 year level, what happens? Another drug? My endocrinologist agreed to prescribe physical therapy for resistance training. I have been doing that for almost 2 years. I have been doing strength training for 3 years. In the past 4 months I have enrolled in a balance class with other adults. I go to each one every week. My balance class costs me $30 a MONTH and it is ran by a physical therapist. We all get individualized help because we are not all at the same level of fitness. My physical therapist for resistance training is paid for by insurance. My strength training is done by a physical therapist and I do pay for that myself but it's worth it. If you aren't familiar with any good physical therapists, contact a good orthopedic clinic. They can recommend a great one. That's where mine came from. I get my next bone density this summer.

Tue, Feb 4 10:30am · Gastroparesis Diet – Questions, Suggestions, Tips in Digestive Health

the bottle says it helps with the motility of your stomach which is also good for IBS and any stomach related issues. It is all natural. I am beginning to wonder if that is why I can eat quite a few things…more than most people here…and don't have any vomiting or bowel issues. Sometimes I feel fuller faster than other times but I find it's because I've eaten something about 3pm before dinner. But 6 meals a day is not an option for me. So Equate is my go-to protein supplement. Get it at Walmart. Recommended by my dietician because it tastes better than Ensure, same as Ensure for ingredients and proteins/vitamins/minerals, and is cheaper.

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???

Could someone tell me where to go to find a reliable and doctor-approved gastroparesis diet – what to eat and not eat. I have it and now my 51 year old son has it too. Or where is it on the Mayo clinic site?
