Re: Forteo
Apr 11, 2010
Hi Mitsy and Taape!

I'm trying to find out how long the gains from Forteo last. My husband is ending his second year on it and we're trying to decide whether he should take a rest from it, or keep going. He had a DXA about 14 months into the Forteo and it definitely stopped his downward slide. In fact, he went from -3.6 to -3.2 in AP spine. Not much change in hip: -2.6 both times. But we are excited about the gain in his spine and don't want to lose that.

Someone on another board commented that she gained 16% in her spine from one year on Forteo, then lost it all in one year after going off of it. Have either of you lost bone mass after being off of Forteo for a while?

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 03:19 PM.
