Hi, I'm a newbie too and have a similar dilema as Nanny. I had a Dexascan almost 2 years ago and was told I needed to go on meds. My score was a -2.83. I have held out. I saw my doc. last week and told him I decided not to take the prescribed Fosamax. He told me I really need to. I'm 46, have dairy, soy & glutten allergies. I'm taking 50,000 units of Vit D a week, taking calcium (not so regularly) and work out at a gym at least 2x a week. I was going to start this morning taking Fosamax because my doc. really has frightened me into thinking my bones are in really bad shape, but I'm just nervous about all of the side affects & unknowns of the osteo meds. I really don't know what to do. I don't want brittle bones. Thanks for being here.
