@heffert@heffert yes take the betablockers. I am on metoprolol (low dose 12.5mg x2) and it controls the n/s ventricular tachycardia. Or you may prefer bisoprolol as you only need to take it once a day. This is a condition that needs to be treated. Untreated will most likely get worse over time.

Yes, I have six implants! Pre-prolia.

In my case, I lost bone from cracked roots (old root canals)in molars for example. Infection develops over time. The infection eats away at the bone. Sometimes this infection does not show up on an xray. So, by the time the tooth is extracted there is significant bone loss. If you then choose to go the implant route a bone graft is required (artificial bone used). All of my many unfortunate dental troubles were long before Prolia.

@nancyrod69 I have had loads of dental problems over the years(prior to prolia). Decaying teeth cause bone loss.

@nancyrod69 Maybe another specialist can review your case and decide what should happen next.

I live in Canada also. My endocrinologist heads up the osteoporosis programme at a major hospital. She is involved in lots of research studies. I am on Prolia. I would hazard a guess that there are more specialists in the field of osteoporosis who based on the evidence support the use of Prolia. Private message me if you want the name of the specialist (you may live nearby).

Missed beats, palpitations, fluttering sensations may or may not be serious and may or may not need to be treated. For many years I had palpitations on an infrequent basis and skipped beats. As time went on, things changed . Holter monitor picked up atrial tachycardia. Told you could treat or not treat or take magnesium. 6 months later, symptoms became frequent, annoyingly and unnervingly persistent. This time the holter monitor picked up ventricular tachycardia. Cardiologists jump to attention when that shows up. And that needs to be treated . Sometimes with a betablocker and sometimes with a calcium channel blocker. I take metoprolol.
Moral of the story, if you are experiencing any of the above always have it checked out.

No, canned vegetables contain sodium. Frozen vegetables, on the other hand, don't. It is the potassium in vegetables and fruits that help the kidneys get rid of sodium through the urine which in turn lowers b.p.
Leafy greens (e.g. spinach, romaine lettuce, kale ) are high in potassium.
