Dec 10, 2019 · Osteoporosis treatment or strontium citrate? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Thank you for this well thought out and informative write-up. I think we all benefit from hearing the experiences of others. There is so much to consider in each individuals journey in dealing with osteoporosis. I know I glean something helpful from what others share. Keep us posted on your progress!

Nov 25, 2019 · Forteo vs. Tymlos in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Sadly, suing a company or any “entity” almost always has the cards stacked against the claimant. For the few stories that get published about some cheater making false claims and getting some huge payout, I think there are hundreds (or thousands) of people who should receive compensation, but get nothing. The state of Virginia really stacks the deck against people who get injured and try to sue for negligence. The interpretation is that if the claimant has any responsibility whatsoever for the injury (… you should have been paying more attention and not tripped over that big crack in the sidewalk, or that pool of soapy water on the floor, etc., etc.), then the claimant gets nothing. It’s crazy.

Good article! The “pop-ups” are a bit distracting, but the information was helpful.

Oct 6, 2019 · Calcium and Vitamin D for bone density in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Be careful of the Zumba unless it is aimed at the “older” practitioners. Regular Zumba can be extremely hard or knees and ankles, as well as spine twisting and risk of tripping yourself up. I’m doing a class now that is more “line dancing” in its approach. The steps and sequence are reviewed before actually doing the dance, and there are not so many confusing step changes. You still get a good, sweaty workout with gentle impact on your bones. But this approach is just so much safer.

Aug 14, 2019 · Reclast Infusion in Bones, Joints & Muscles

So you can only do the Reclast for five years? Did you have good bone density increase while on the Reclast? Did you retain your increase after going off Reclast? Or did you take a different medication after the Reclast? My Endocrinologist has me on Forteo for two years, and then wants to switch to Reclast, so I’m curious about everyone’s experience.

The maximum amount of time for Forteo is actually two years.

Aug 8, 2019 · Treating Osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Interesting article. I’ve been reading Dr. Browns stuff for over 20 years. Initially I followed her advice, as well as many other alternate advice gurus, regarding more natural ways to stave off osteoporosis. From age 42 to age 64, this all worked to slow down my bone loss. But finally it became clear that something more drastic was necessary. I have started Forteo to hopefully regain some of my bone loss. Unfortunately, no drugs are free of side effects. You always have to weigh the pros and cons for your own unique situation. In reality, even “natural” substances should be used only after understanding their impacts as well. Also, I always take advice from sites that are selling their own alternatives to prescription drugs with “a grain of salt”. They are not without bias … which is not to say, at all, that they are selling “snake oil” either. Only that we all must do the research to know what is the best for our own situations.

Thank you for sharing! I’m hoping for good results too!
