Have you checked out the Natural Remedies for Osteoporosis group on Facebook? Lots of good suggestions and support from others who also want to go the natural way. Good luck.

This is true of the biophophonates, but it's not true for Tymlos or Forteo.

Hi — I started Tymlos a year ago — had some nausea in the beginning, but that dissipated. I do the shots just as I go to bed which seems to work best for me. Had my bone scan last month and my t-scores in my spine are all in the normal range. I will be on Tymlose for most of this year — after that the MD wants me to go on Reclast — which I won't do. Am looking into Chinese medicine along with diet and exercise. Good luck to you.

I'm not sure where they were with my first scan two year ago, but prior to that I had had 5 compression fractures. I think they were in the -2 to -3 range.

Hi, I have been on Tymlos for a year. Just had my bone scan and my T-scores in my spine are now all in the normal range. Still need to improve the t-scores in the femur, but I trust they will improve. A few side effects in the beginning, but they dissiapated. I like the Tymlos is a daily shot because I can skip it if I'm feeling unwell. I do not know what I will do after Tymlos because I don't want to go on a biophosphonate. I am researching Chinese medicine/herbs at this point. Good luck to you.

Good advice, but I would like to point out that Forteo and Tymlos are NOT biophosphonates. They are the only drugs that build bone. I had some loss of appetite and nausea problems when I first started taking Tymlos, but that passed. It's a daily injection — so if I'm not feeling well I can stop it for a couple of days. After a year on Tymlos, I just had my bone scan and the Tscores in my spine are all in the mormal range. I am doing lots of research now, because my MD recommends Reclast after I finish the Tymlos and I won'd do that, so I am looking deeper into nutrition. My diet is good now, but it's always possible to improve. Good luck.

I am so sorry. It's such a lonely and scary place to be. There should be reliable studies available that show the percent of people who have adverse effects from each of these drugs, but I haven't found such a study yet. I did a lot of research and decided on Tymlos which is a daily injection. Had loss of appetite in the beginning and some nausea, but my body seems to have adjusted to it. I also wasn't thrilled with the local endocrinologists and did more research and am going to the Osteoporosis Center at UConn about a 2-hour drive, but it's worth it. Have been on Tymlos for a year and just had a bone scan. The T scores for my spine are all in the normal range. I eat well, take supplements and exercise. I am 80 and lead a full, busy life. I am doing more research because I don't want to go on one of the biophosphonates after I finish with Tymlos. Am looking into Naturapaths — and also reasearching Chinese herbs. Don't be discourage — there are solutions. There is a FB group — Natural Remedies for Osteoporosis, which is also interesting. Good luck. If I can be of any help, please let me know. Regards, Carole
