Been to see the rheumy today last year after a dexa scan i was told I didn,t have osteoporosis but osteopenia. I stopped taking alendronic acid because it made me ill. She has read me the riot act to the tune of must take that or something else or I will end up with crumbling bones as I get older also the risk of diabetes. she is a right ray of sunshine! She also was annoyed because I upped the preds to get over a flair (I am slowly reducing back down 2/3 days at a time to get back to 5mg. It was her specialist nurse who told me to do it anyway and guess what she said go back down to 5 mg in one jump! I nearly fell off of the chair. I was feeling a lot better today so now I am determined to get off preds altogether and don't see her anymore.Wendy
