Hi all, don't respond much but do read your informative posts. I do have a wonderful neuro-ophthmalogist at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA, USA. Doctors can't take the time to tell us what experience has taught all on this board.
Diagnosed with GCA with a TAB in January 2015. Started with 60mg prednisone, was down to 2mg in January when CRP sky rocketed and went back to 10mg. Now on a slow 5mg. Have been taking the 600 mg with D3 twice a day and a multi vitamin. Also eat Greek yogurt at least once a day in addition to my skim milk at dinner.
DEXA scan was normal in January 2015. DEXA last month showed osteopenia, about 13% loss. Rheumy does not want to do anything at this time.
But I am wondering which type of calcium is best to use. I have been using the calcium carbonate.
Thanks in advance.
