    HAS ANYONE TAKEN PROLIA

    My mom is 78, has had osteo for 20+ yrs. She takes D3 & calcium & tests have been o.k but last year it show great loss. She saw an Endocrinologist & she wants her to go on Prolia (says she is at VERY high risk of fracture). She is very afraid of the side affects. When she was first diagnosed she went on one of the daily Rx but stopped because of side affects. It is so hard to decide what to do? I would love to hear from anyone good or bad that have taken it.

    Help...I'm freaking out over bone density test!

    Help...I just had a bone density test and it's showing I'm osteoporotic (score of -3 according to the radiology tech....my ob-gyn has not reviewed it with me yet). I'm only 53 and otherwise in perfect health!. I am completely freaking out now, afraid I'll be labeled as osteoporotic (with no idea what implications that will have) and doomed to a life of cifosis and compression fractures. I have absolutely no fracture history. I was drastically underweight for a brief time as a teenager....

    TScore -3.7

    My T-Score is -3.7 in my lumber spine and slightly better in my hips. I am extremely sensitive to all kinds of drugs - I am one of that handful of people the drugs ads talk about in their warnings of dire reactions. I am seeing an endocrinologist in two weeks to discuss options. Any advice?

    Comfy shoes for borderline osteoporosis

    I just want to share about some fabulous shoes I found for serious walking, even with my borderline osteoporosis. My last Tcell count was -2.5. I am age 64 and weigh 115lbs. I had 3 metatarsal stress fractures (both feet involved) in the 4 years leading up to this diagnosis, each episode caused just by walking too many hours in the mall or on pavement in medium-supportive shoes (Skechers and others). I was scared to death to go on an 8-day London vacation this past June, which was to include a lot....

    Reclast or Prolia? Have to decide in the next few days....help!

    Hi there, I am 54 years old and was diagnosed with Osteoporosis 3 1/2 years ago. I didn't take any meds (I was afraid) for the first year, then I took Evista for 2 years. I recently had a second dexascan and my numbers did not improve and some got a bit worse. My Gyno sent me to a Rheumatologist and this doctor suggested discontinuing the Evista and instead taking Reclast or Prolia. I have severe acid reflux and cannot take any of the other oral drugs. My T scores for my last scan were Lumbar....
