... nvmom - my endocrinologist said that Fosamax is used to correct the off-balanced cycle the bones go through of sloughing off bone and building replacement bone. The osteoblast versus osteoclast procedure. The osteoclasts slough off bone, and the osteoblasts build new replacement bone. When these are out of balance, more osteoclasts than osteoblasts, then it creates an... (16 replies)

She did a panel of labs including hormones, thyroid, etc. etc., and these are all normal, however, the nurse would not give me the results to my thoracic and lumbar spine films over the phone. She could only tell me that "there were... (11 replies)

But I am only 42, premenopausal, with a healthy lifestyle, so I was greatly disturbed and immediately began researching the internet.
