Have CREST syndrome with GERD and cannot take bisphosphonates. Have had Aridia infusions, Forteo doe 2 years (with excellent results), recast infusions for 3 years and the doctor wants to put me on prolia. The only thing that worked was Forteo, but they can't give it to me anymore. My last bone density was very bad, at high risk for fracture of hip, femur and lower spine. Had no side effects on all above medications,but after reading the reviews for prolia, I'm not so sure. I'm 66 years old. Doesn't seem that I have much choice I either suffer painful fractures or take my chances with side effects on prolia.
Is there another option out there. I'm worried that my auto immune disease might trigger an auto immune response which could kill me. Any thoughts?View Thread
