Following my recent diagnosis I saw my GP to discuss my risk factors. After scoring the overall opinion was still that I should take medication due to it showing in my right neck of femur with osteopenia in the left and in the spine. I have maintained that I want to try natural methods so GP has sought the advice from the bone clinic to see if I should do that and have a further scan in a year.
Started on adcal and had a blood test. Calcium was fine but Vit D level low. Have been prescribed a 7 day course of vit D and will restart Adcal after. I have researched dietary options and apparently chai and sesame seeds are good. Also told collegen but not sure how that works. I don’t want to get too weighed down and panic buy everything. Will increase my weight bearing exercise as much as possible. Currently on 1 mg of pred and due to taper in about 10 days to 1/0 for a month. Have picked up a cold so will see how that goes. Off to the Caribbean next week so that should boost the vit D
Again, many thanks for the support and advice given. Positive thoughts and love to you all.
