    Diagnosed with Osteoporosis at 40, now 46. Scared of treatment.

    Hi. I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis (DEXA) at 40. I'm now 46 and did not follow any treatment. Always scared of side-effects of medications and stuff I read on the Internet. Results were: Region, DMO (g/cm2), Adult-Young %, Adult-Young Z-Score L1-L4, 0.817, 67, -3.4 Left Femur, 0.686, 62, -2.9 Left Forearm, 0.868, 87, -1.3 That was 6 years ago.

    Osteoporosis

    At the she of 12 I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I've broken/fractured well over 13 different bones. I feel as if my bones have become rearranged inside to where I'm starting to look as deformed as I feel. Has anyone been diagnosed that young and can share with me how they survived though the pain and challenges this kind of life gives you? With each new injury I become even more discouraged about living a normal life.

    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.

    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?
