Has anyone reversed osteoporosis without bone shots?
My doctor wants me to take bone shots but won’t tell me the name of the drug other than its a hormone and it will givevme hot flashes. I find it rather condescending the way she talked to me.
I know some of the shots have bad side effects such as jaw necrosis and upper thigh fractures. I do have bad TMJ and seems my luck is if it could happen, my luck it will happen.
The fact she won’t tell me the name of the medication so I can be informed about it and see if my insurance covers it and how much it will cost me ticks me off..might be time to find a new doctor.
Question is it possible to turn osteoporosis around with the shots?
I’m not there yet but osteoporosis runs in my family and I’m scared to death.
I see their deformed fingers and constant body pain.
Pssttt. :womanwink: I also would demand any doc tells me what they WANT to give me. Explain the benefits and the risks. Then I would go home and google the heck out of this. It’s a shot and that means it’s going to take a while to get out of your system if it doesn’t agree with you. Get YOUR records always and every lab test, etc. no matter what place you go. Andrew uses a much higher quality of calcium in his products and they absorb the best. Citracal is not very good as they use the cheapest form of Calcium. I would start slowly on some weight bearing exercises and get those dark leafy greens in. Good for you for not thinking that doctors aren’t Gods and they should never disresect the patient that’s paying them! Also, Vit. D3 is vital. Andrew has an article on that also. I wish you good health!
Sorry….but I deleted my comment to this post. I haven’t read the community guidelines.
Thank you all for your kind responses. I am very sorry if I inadvertently upset some and if I intruded upon Community Guidelines.
Certainly was not my intention. There is much info and alot of confusion concerning osteoporosis. I think it is up to us to be active partners in our health journey with our doctors, health supplements like Andrew Lessmans, eating right and exercise.
I thank each and every one for your time and wise advice.
Blessings and peace to all. Be well 🙂
If my doctor was insisting I take ANY medication without telling me the name of it, I would be looking for a new doctor!
Hi everyone! Just jumping in here to remind everyone that you should not give or take any medical advice per our Community Guidelines. Your health is something to take seriously, so it’s important to ask a doctor instead of online if you’re concerned about something. Thanks for your understanding!
I THINK YOU CAN TAKE ALL THE CALCIUM U WANT BUT IF YOU HAVE THIS YOU MUST DO SOMETHING CAUSE ITS JUSN NOT WORKING I HAVE 2 OPINIONS

Hi Loaf… are you allowed to say which shot you get twice a year?
I tried the shot that you give yourself daily and also a tablet and had adverse reactions to both …. right now I am not on anything and was considering just doing the Vitamin D and calcium from over the counter….
It’s VERY scary as this is how my leg broke last November 🙁
I’m so happy that you are feeling so well and hope that your test comes back showing improvement ! I’d be interested in knowing ……
Thanks …. have a GREAT Day 🙂
I WOULD DO WHAT THE DOCTOR TELLS YOU MEEZER
i don’t think that we are allowed to discuss this type of question on the hsn forums but because i can see that you are stressed over your current dilemma and because i’ve had a great experience with a great product, i’ll try to help you out. my recommendation to you, and don’t hold me to it- check with a/your doctor/bone doctor first- is to try "citracal calcium supplement slow/extended release 1200". it’s over the counter. it costs about $12.49. if you google it, it’s website has a $1.00 off coupon. it came recommended by one of my family doctors who has many, many years of experience and has an excellent reputation. my family member uses it daily and is quite happy and satisfied with it. like i said, go to its webpage online, get its information and print it out. take the print out to the doctor or if you want to purchase it first and then let the doctor see the box/product, it’s up to you. i suggest printing out the information first- so you don’t have to worry about returning the product, etc. good luck!! i shall send you many blessings. be well, my friend. xoxo psandbtw, also try researching andrew lessman’s calcium supplements/vitamins here on hsn. go to hsn home page. go to search box in upper right hand corner. type in andrew lessman and see what comes up. there is a calcium supplement in his inventory for sure. call up its information and print it out. show this to your doctor too. perhaps he/she feels that andrew lessman’s product is superior to what is out on the market. plus, hsn offers so many specials/promotions/discounts on andrew’s products that his products might prove not just more effective but more economical than others as well. happy research and be well, my friend!! blessings. xoxo
MEEZER I AM ON BONE SHOTS TWICE A YEAR AND I FEEL GREAT THERE IS A SUPPORT GROUP ON LINE . DEPENDS WHAT DRUG SHE PUTS YOU ON . THEY TELL ME IT WILL INCREASE BONE MASS THEY TELL ME TO TAKE CALCIUM TWICE A DAY BECAUSE THE DRUG WILL TAKE ALL THE CALCIUM AND PUT IT BACK INTO THE BONE . I HAD MY FIRST SHOT IN JANUARY AND SECOND IN JUNE ALL IS GOOD I HAVE A FEMALE DOC AND SHE IS VERY GOOD THERE IS ONE WHERE YOU GIVE YOUR SELF A DAILY INJECTION I DID NOT WANT THAT ONE . I WILL SEE IF ITS WORKING WITH NEXT BONE DENSITY TEST
