Hi DB, and thanks for your reply.

Yep, he had the blood/urine tests done on New Year's eve. Talk about waiting until the last minute before having a new deductible kick in, LOL. (Though that's a moot point now.) Yes, there was bone turnover going on.

As for the link you posted, we have it from when you posted it before. Hubby still has it on his desktop and has referred to it several times during his decision-making. What put him over the top was the recommendation from my gynecologist last week. I'd said, "Forteo costs so much!" and he said, "A hip fracture costs a lot more." Also, the PA from his endo office (also a male) is taking it and has had wonderful results. He's the one who will be training him with the injections. He (the PA) intends to keep taking Forteo past the 24 months, BTW. I guess if he, knowledgeable as he his, is willing to take the risks, hubby is more apt to listen to him.

He asked me to ask you about injection sites: thigh or stomach, or both? He is worried about getting the infamous Forteo spare tire. Having lost weight (from 400 lbs to 170 lbs) and kept it off for the last 25 years, he is reluctant to do anything that will affect his waistline. Also he is concerned about leg pain if he injects the thighs. What has been your experience?
