Hi. Currently living in the Netherlands but originally from UK (moved here 4.5 yrs ago). Had results from my 3 yearly DEXA. Spine worsened a bit (-3.3 to -3.6), hip improved (-2.2 to -2.1). I usually run a lot & take Calcium & vit d but a (still healing) metatarsal stress fracture & this result has made me realise it's time to talk treatment. I'm 46.
I don't want to take Prolia - everything about it puts me off. My preference is Forsteo (if my specialist will prescribe it - health care system is not public like NHS so options are often available), or Evista/raloxifene. I have a stressful/busy job and busy leisure time so I want to minimise impact I might suffer and carry on running as I do (and which is recommended by my bone specialist and every single GP I talk to).
Hearing people's experiences would help a lot. I've read nearly everything there is to read on each option, spoken to a specialist nurse etc but those terrifying patient reviews after Googling, stay in my mind. Advice???
