How was the herbal evaluation you mentioned?

So fat it is the only form of calcium that my stomach can tolerate! Probably won’t know how well it works until I have further testing but will let you know when I know anything! At least I don’t have the joint pain I was having on the Prolia.

I have had a Prolia shot once a year for 3 years. I have had infections within the 6 months after each shot requiring antibiotic treatment each time. Prolia seems to affect my immune system so I am not going to take any more injections. I think the Infections may kill me before the fractures do but I am carefully watching my diet, doing yoga, cardio and weight training!! We shall see how this works!! I am also taking Algaecal because I can’t tolerate other calcium supplements. I am working up to 2 tablets daily and so far so good.

I have been taking D3 2000 mg daily and the Algaecal has magnesium in it as well as some other minerals. I, like you, have been diagnosed with osteopenia.

I cannot take regular calcium supplements due to stomach issues but am going to try Algaecal which is a plant based calcium that supposedly helps bone density. I will see how I tolerate this and post my results!! I exercise a lot, do yoga twice a week and cardio on an elliptical machine as well as walk a lot and weights as well. I just need to up my calcium intake! Really don’t want to take any more Prolia!!

I had 3 Prolia injections, one each year for three years. I had muscle aches and pains and with each injection I had an infection within that 6 month period that required antibiotic treatment. The doctor wants me to take these injections every six months now since the drug company has found out that 9 women experienced multiple spinal fractures when they stopped the Prolia. I am afraid to take any more of this medication because it seems to affect my immune system and now I am worried that I will have spinal fractures if I don't take it.
