Have you been diagnosed with osteoporosis. Do you take any of the recommended medications for osteoporosis? Prolia? Forteo? Any side effects? Are they effective? And how about supplements, such as Calcium and Vitamin D? Any other recommendations?
I recently had a bone scan which showed that my bones are strong and I have always taken supplements like vitamin D and calcium. In fact, my last vitamin D level was 80. But the clinical trial I am in, which is the reason I had the bone scan, can cause osteoporosis. I am taking prednisone so I need to be careful. I will go back in another four months and have another bone scan.
