I have recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis and there is no way that I will agree to taking Prolia or similar drugs. You could not pay me a million dollars to take these dangerous drugs!
I would like to go the natural way to just try to maintain my current situation.
So I have increased calcium food and supplement intake daily, do weight bearing exercise and have stopped eating/drinking anything with caffeine, stopped drinking sodas, etc.
Have you also stopped caffeine and sodas to minimize further harm to your bone mineral density?
HiI've tried to minimise damage to bones in the same way as you, but will have my third injection of Prolia (known as Denosumab here in England) in December. I'm 15 months through a 2 year course of daily injections of Terrosa (Teriparatide). I'm aware of the risks but my consultant feels this is the safest way forward. I'm interested in the different views on here.
Just clarifying - you are actually taking TWO heavy duty bone medications simultaneously? I'm aware the teriparatide treatment will end soon, but I guess you'll be on Prolia indefinitely? Please do keep us up to date about how you feel, and how things are with you as time goes by.
I'll certainly stay in touch. At the moment I feel well, and hope to be saying the same after my third Proliainjection on 8th December.
Your cat's lovely, HeronNS.
In your photo next to 'Reply to HeronNS. Isn't that your cat?
You have a cat (very handsome one, btw). I have a picture of frosted leaves - if you click on my picture it should take you to a page with a larger version. I see what you mean, though. As I type this my avatar, the leaves, is right beside "Reply to Carpet6". You are very observant, I hadn't noticed this somewhat confusing feature before.
Thank you for clearing that up. I was beginning to wonder if I was seeing phantom cats!
