hi everyone just a question about AA, is it ok to just stop taking it?
I was diagnosed in 2016 with PMR and 18 months later had a dexa scan which showed I had osteoporosis in the lower back. I can’t remember they exact numbers but it was only just in the realms of the lower end so was given Alendronic acid tablets 70 mg to take weekly. Dr at the time said I had to take them for 3 years then another assessment.
I was reluctant to take them but did. I read Kate book about bones a while back and did lots of research into AA none of which was good .
So now 3 years on my Dr says I have another 2 years on them .
I have decided I don’t want to take them anymore. But haven’t told Dr yet.
Also I have been changing my diet to include more calcium and over the last few years have taken up Pilates and more recently doing loads of walking. And just ordered a weighted vest to help with weight bearing. I’ve always done yoga and still do .
Any comments would be greatly appreciated
