Thank you for all the info. I am perimenopause...not on any hormones. I do take thyroid meds, vitd3 5000iu and yes I take 1300 calcium in supp form aside from my diet divided up daily. The change in my BMD is -1.8%. Lowest t-score -3.1 at the L1, -2.8 at the L4 . My hips are at -1.1 with BMD change of .2% and my neck t-score was -1.7 with BMD of .665 My vit D level was 54 last it was checked. Both primary care/gyn and endocrinologist are agreeable to the prolia choice. I am just unsure and would like to know what I can do if more and how to measure progress other than waiting so long to see if tx is even working and is this time frame normal? Thanks again for your input and the referral to the website. Any info is appreciated much.View Thread
I am 48 yrs 98 lbs and gaining with a low of 93 few months ago and have been on Atelvia for almost 1.5 yrs with my T score getting worse L1-l4 and opstopenia with borderline osteopoosis for other areas... I am also hypothyroid having trouble regulating with mostly being thrown into hyper mode.... I am nervous and unsure which I should choose as to not just slow down the progression but build back up at any extent.. I have been a very active runner now restricted to treadmill/elliptical and kettle balls for weight bearing and cardio. Any encouragement/direction and similar personal experience I would really like to hear. I am not an idle person and have been active in outdoor activities and sports most my life until problems started with my thyroid 2 yrs ago and have progressed to blah! Not depressed just stressed and looking to progress in some forward direction )View Thread
