Osteoporosis Message Board


Osteoporosis Board Index


Hello -
I am new to this board and feeling anxious. I eat somewhat healthy, exercise and really have no other health issues, except for my osteoporosis. My #'s have gone down with the latest scan and my Dr immediately said I should start with the Forteo shots. He did the blood work and that came back OK, but on the urinalysis it showed excess calcium in the urine which indicated to him that my bones were not absorbing the CitracalD enough to help me. Some of this may have been my own doing as for the past two years I was taking the Citracal (two pills) in the morning on an empty stomach. I just didn't realize that this is not the way to do this. Could this have been hurting me and causing this high level in the urine? The citracalD is only 500 mg and I thought I had read somewhere that the calcium pill should be at least 600mg. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it.
Thank You!
Kathy
