Hi. I’ve been on Teriparatide for 5 months and I also take Vitamin D3 1000 iu. Would it be ok to add in Vitamin K2MK7 to this mix? If so, which is the best brand and dose to go for? Very many thanks.
Vitamin K2MK7 and Teriparatide : Hi. I’ve been... - Bone Health
Hi Snowybear, I am on teriparatide (since October 2020) and take K2-M7, as far as I am aware, there are no known interactions. I use the BetterYou oral spray (I'm in the UK.) It's available at Holland and Barrett.
I personally don't know if it is safe given the meds you are on, but everything I've read suggests you should take K2 (MK7) to help improve bones, so you should definitely ask your doctor. QUESTION. You are taking Teriparatide, when is that prescribe instead of bisphosphonates?
Hi Snowybear, I’ve been on teriparatide for 18 months and I take K2 mk7. The consultant wasn’t sure it does any good but said it wouldn’t do any harm. He advised taking one that is made using natto which is a fermented soybean product. I get them from Amazon. I also take calcium (citrate, can’t tolerate carbonate), D3 and a collagen supplement. And cbd oil capsules - all rather expensive and feel like I rattle but hopefully doing some good.
Apparently after the two years on teriparatide it is important to be on an "antiresorptive therapy" for some amount of time to "lock in" the improvement, otherwise the bones lose the density again.
Yes,definitely take K2, 90ug daily. It helps the absorbtion of D3. You might want to consider upping the D3 during the winter months. Up to 4000 iu is fine. If you're looking for a good supplier try Lamberts Healthcare. They're very good and are a great source of information about all supplements
