Osteoporosis …

Well my friends…last night I had learned that I had Osteoporosis. No fret though. It runs in the family and I take steroids that can cause Osteoporosis. Unfortunately I am just experiencing at an earlier age than most family members because of taking Prednisone and have for the past 20 years yet just about. I will be starting a medication called Actonel – one of the most popular medications advertized on television these days along with Boniva. At my age of 36, I never thought of having Osteoporosis, but I do … glad to be taking something to better it anyway. I do have this thought and question racing in my head right now… What’s next? LOL…

  1. I’m sorry about you having Osteoporosis. My husband has it, and my mother had it, so I know something about it. My husband took a daily shot called Forteo for two years, and that helped him a lot. Now he is taking Actonel once a week to maintain his bones. Do take good care of yourself. Did the doctor tell you to get lots of calcium in your diet? That’s very important. I wish you the best, and hope your bones will get stronger.
