Re: Vitamin MK-7
Jan 9, 2009
Dear Starfish:

Thank you so much for taking time for your explanation. I have had 3 DEXA scans over the past 5 years. I am "overdue" for my next one, as per my physician. However, I am totally reluctant to go as I don't know if I would do anything differently. My doctor said we could try Evista if indicated. I have been "diagnosed" with osteopenia ... I am 47 years old. A few years ago, after my 2nd DEXA scan, I was prescribed Boniva and had severe bone pain within 48 hours. My prescription changed to Fosamax, which I declined. The more I read, the more I realized I didn't want ANY bisphosphonate medications. I exercise, eat right, take calcium citrate (hx of kidney stone) and have decided not to take any prescription medication. I am just starting to look into other suggestions on this site such as MK7 and Strontium (which I know NOTHING about). I, too, have decided to forego any future DEXA scans and that's why I wanted to know the reasoning behind your decision.

Thanks again,

P.S. Any places/sites you can recommend that offer suggestions on the above would be great!
