... Hi there - I'm in the UK and haven't heard of the urine test you have just taken. I know there is one but when I asked my doctor I was told it wasn't necessary( can't remember exactly what she said) but it seems to me it would be useful to know how fast you are losing bone.

If you were on Fosamax, Actonel, or Boniva. any of these three drugs can cause (and usually do), bad heartburn and GI problems. They also have a ''half-life'' - meaning they stay... (18 replies)
