The Hidden Truth About Bone Density - The Myth of Osteoporosis
If you are relying solely on a bone density scan to evaluate the health of your bone or to identify osteopenia or osteoporosis, you are being mislead by the accuracy of DEXA.
In this video, I break down bone scan myths.

I am 69 yo I have been taking these meds since 1994 when a dexa scan showed osteoporosis. I have now suffered fx of all of my vertebrae except T4, and cervical spine. I also have Hashimotos. I ruptured my T 12 Dec 15, I can't get these doctors to listen to me. What can I do? I am miserable.

It reminds me of the whole " You gotta go on statins ( for high cholesterol) theme" Back in about the mid 1980s, a 300 count of cholesterol was considered a "high normal number". THEN they 'changed the math' and made 200 'normal' and 300 was suddenly "high cholesterol and potentially dangerous". Millions of people suddenly were 'diagnosed' with 'high cholesterol' and big pharma made off like bandits, as more and more doctors put their patients on those potentially dangerous 'statin' medications.( with dangers/side effects like liver damage, may cause diabetes, brain fog possibly leading to dementia in later years, diabetes, muscle weakness and loss etc.) In other words, ALL the side effects you're NOT told about, by your own doctor, when they prescribe these meds. ALL sorts of videos here on You Tube talk about this, too !

This is so critically valuable… I am a nursing professor, and a very petite woman. My GYN had me get a DEXA scan when I was in my 50s and it showed osteoporosis and osteopenia. I have a very active lifestyle and exercise as a part of my daily routine. I went to see an endocrinologist, hoping to find out preventative techniques, and he wanted to put me on meds right away… I fired him and amped up my exercise. Something in the depths of my soul said that was not the right thing to do. I am certain that for petite woman. I have very strong bones. I have even taken falls doing very athletic things, and I have not fractured any bones… Thank God.

I am so grateful for you! I was just diagnosed with osteopenia per dex scan. I'm 72 and exercise 5-6 days a week: swim 45-60 minutes a mile+/-, bike 25 miles in just under 2 hours, hike 3 miles in an hour, lift weights 4 times a week (135#) leg press 3 sets of 12. In line skating since 1991. Cook from scratch organic food, no processed foods...... So, I was shocked by the report from my doctor. You just gave me an endorphin high! I resisted calcium supplement because of all the negative reports. I don't take any pharmaceuticals, just B-12 injection for pernicious anemia. My motto is: I've got to keep moving to keep moving.❤

I started taking B-12 injections twice a month because I have pernicious anemia and was always fatigued. Blood tests always came back roughly normal for everything. I researched what my blood levels were for many things, found out the doctor that does my labs does a very general report (Veterans Admin. doctors) and just looked at the typical range for inactive males, wow, so relevant I thought to myself. After I took 2-3 B-12 shots every 10-15 days, I started to feel like I was 20 years old again. It's been amazing.

I am thankful this posting is still here! I had a devastating scan last year I think because I was 66. Of course I was freaking out because it said, basically my bones were sick. I then told all my doctors that the previous year I had been hit by a car while riding my bike. I explained how I must have hit the street with the back of my head then flipped mid air and finally landed face down in the middle of the intersection. I knew this because while face down blood was running down from the back of my head. Well the rest of my body took a very great impact also, BUT NO BROKEN BONES! 😂 So I got out of hospital 2 days later no concussion either, I was happy and felt so strong. The OP Endo doctors made me feel weak and in danger, that is so wrong. I am glad to keep riding my bike and walking and eating healthy and not accepting of their diagnosis. I don't want that terrible medicine they so freely give out and don't care what happens long term. Thanks to everyone here and the doctor for siding with health and good out comes.

This is so true what the doctor says. When I was 56 (now I'm 75), I was told by my doctor that I had osteoporosis. He gave me some medicine. A month later I couldn't swallow so I stopped taking it. I have always exercised all my life and was a gymnast when I was young. Now I'm 75 and do butterfly three times a week. I feel strong and supple. I'm so glad that my body rejected this awful medicine. This goes the same for medicine against cholesterol. I love to eat, but I had strong reactions against this medicine a few months after, so I stopped. I take no medicine anymore.

Yes, the less the doc's drugs, the better… none is the best. I had a bone density test 10 years ago, which showed a very bad score. At the time I was taking clonazepam for sleep and omeprazole for stomach acid. Looking back, I realize they made me stiff and anxious. Because all drugs are acidic, they are very bad for bones. Bones love an alkaline diet.

Thank you for your honesty and going against (some of) the medical community and drug companies attempts to brainwash us. In my late 40’s my gyno diagnosed me with osteopenia. I didn’t buy it. I refused to take meds or see him again. I’m in my late 50’s. I’m vegan. I eat healthy, real food. I regularly practice yoga. I do handstands, other arm balances, and backbends that people half my age can’t do.

I joined a gym and I’m doing silver sneakers exercises five days a week for an hour a day, and I am walking 3 to 4 miles a day with my dog, and that’s going to have to do it for me. Eating a healthy diet and trying to gain a little weight for my bones.

Finally!! My PhD is in bone biology. Way back in 1999, I was at a huge medical conference. Abbott was pushing their first generation osteoporosis drug (BiP). I told the rep that they'll start to see very specific hip fractures. He laughed at me. But these drugs basically kill osteoclasts. Well, that gives you a disease called osteopetrosis (you're not rebuilding bone because you're no longer resorbing it to create new bone). You're literally exchanging a natural phenomenon with a disease by taking BiP's. DEXA tells you about bone density, but zero about bone strength or health. There is no direct correlation between DEXA scan outcomes and bone health. There never has been. It's nice to hear this out loud finally. I no longer work in bone, but all this was predictable since the mid to late 1990's, but drug companies ignored the science.

My husband was diagnosed with "osteopenia" during his battle with prostate cancer. I had a feeling there was nothing to it and kept trying to tell him so, but he overreacted and bought a ton of calcium. I think all that calcium definitely contributed to the renal collapse that killed him. It was one of the worst things they could have told him.

I'm not sure how old we were but it was about 30 years ago when the doctor read the scan and said I had the bones of a 95 yr old. I just didn't believe him. Several weeks later a girlfriend was shocked to hear she had the bones of a 95 yr old. I mentioned it to my sister and she said the same thing. Not all the same doctors either. Same happened with mammograms. My sister was flipping out and I told her I got one of those letters too. I stopped getting mammograms. This was like 30 years ago too.

@Nancy Fahey oh wow I have heard scary things like that about doctors patience but I do trust my doctor. I know why I develop osteoporosis so my dexa scan results really didn't shock me but they did make me so sad and disappointed in myself, after you got your dexa scan results what did you do? But that doctor tell you to get on medication did you treat your bones naturally? It's been about a year later since I was diagnosed it's still so much I need to learn I think I've made some progress change my diet doing strength training taking supplements I'm just hoping so much in my heart that everything I'm doing is helping my bones I'm not able to get another dexa scan until next year

Thank you Dr Osborne! A breath of fresh air. After I had a severe wrist break one year ago, I received one to three phone calls a day from the insurance company about a "harmless and effective" bone density scan. Letters and email messages as well. Ignored them, sometimes I spoke to them kindly and I finally got mad and said, "I don't need a bone density scan. My bones are just fine I fell off the f*****g porch, down three steps, and broke my fall with my wrist. I'm 71 years old, still working, and lift 35-50 pound boxes of produce weekly. Again, my bones are just fine!". The phone calls finally stopped. Question everything! Find the Dr. Osborne's in every field! Our bodies are amazing.

Doctor - I just turned 67 & have severe scoliosis. My Dr. keeps pushing the bone scan. Asked her-then what? Said meds(I had already researched side effects since most of my friends are on them). I told her I will not take the meds. Later I toyed with the idea of just getting the scan. Thank you for explaining the science and truth of scan, comparison to 35 yr old & mineralization. My labs & bones are great. Other friends keep offering to help me by carrying things etc. I tell them "if you don't use it, you lose it"! Was only thinking about muscle, now I get that it's bone too.

How do we keep the bones around our teeth from losing mass? Chew gum? Do you know?
HotYogaDoctor 2 ай бұрын
​@Winnie Cash the best way is to have a robust cleaning technique (not heavy, but detailed). Periodontal bone loss has more to do with debris, plaque, and poor oral hygiene (ie less than optimal oral hygiene) than any other single cause. Mechanical removal is the answer. Matter left behind or missed by the tooth brush or floss creates an auto immune response that creates the eventual bone loss. Tooth support structure is the only place in the body where mounted infection response doesn't wash infection away (compare with say, a splinter in your finger, which will eventually be ejected). As I used to tell my patients... you only floss the teeth you want to keep! Hope that helps. Depending on conditions, visit a hygienist (might need an annual visit or one every 3 months... can't tell! 😉)

Dr Osborne, after my hysterectomy my doctor kept badgering me to get on Fosamax. So I started taking it at 39. Every time I changed doctors they did the same thing. I took it for 25 years until I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. Then I found out you're only supposed to take it 3 years. I wish I had this information years ago because I never wanted to take it . Unfortunately I let my doctors get away with intimidating me. I am 75 years old now and not only have osteoporosis, I also have GURD, and other GI issues. Thank you for making it clear.

Thank you for putting this important video on KZhome. I am so glad to find it. It is very important information for everyone to know that we are all being misled by our doctors who are wrongly prescribing those dangerous medications. They are not helping but are harming people. I am so glad that I did not take any of these useless medications that were prescribed for me by my different doctors. Thank God! I intuitively knew that they were not right, because when I tried one of those things it made me sick and gave me terrible side effects. I immediately stopped taking it. And I am okay with out any of them. Thank God for doctors like you who are stepping forward and telling people truth about seriousness of this wrong treatments that basically destroying people’s health. I wish to have you as my doctor. God Bless you and your family richly.

Thank you so much for actually explaining so clearly what is really happening with the DEXA and medications for Osteoporosis. I was diagnosed 2 years ago after a broken wrist, which healed perfectly, and was prescribed medication. I didn’t take them, and instead just began taking high dose Vitamin D and K2. I’m in Ireland and hadn’t understood the necessity of making up for our chronic lack of Vitamin D.

Dr. suggested meds for me 3 years ago. I took generic Boneva for 4 months and had such pain in my legs I had to haul myself up steps. Had a scan last year and of course osteo was worse. I refused to try something else because the side effects were the same. Thank you for explaining, I'm 74 walk every day and do yoga once a week. I will also refuse any more scans in the future.

Years ago, after a DEXA scan, my Dr. prescribed Fosamax. Three months later, I had extremely weakened quads, I had difficulty walking up stairs and stooping. Then a few months after that, my family began noticing I seemed to be depressed and not as happy as I usually am. That was a wake-up for me to really pay attention to what was happening to my body. I stopped taking the Fosamax. Within a short span, my mood was back to normal, but it took, I would say a good 2 years before my legs didn't feel like lead. D3-K2 and Magnesium for me. My current dr wants me to get a scan and I refused with a hard "no".

Great video. Thank you so much for helping me understand what DEXA really means. My most recent DEXA showed a spinal T-score of -3.4 and Doctor wanted immediately to put me on Prolia. I told him no as I need to digest what he said, and I would do some of my own research and get back to him. We made a follow up appointment which I have not been to as of yet. Ironically, 2 years ago my spinal T-score was 3.3....taken on two different machines so technically, it may have not changed at all. During that 2 year period, I ate low carb and high protein. My vitamin D level was always normal, blood CA+ and Mg normal, and I was not taking calcium supplements. Three of my physicians, told me I needed to be on meds right away. I was told if I break a hip, I could die in a year or two. I was so stressed out, I cried my eyes out and was sick to my stomach for weeks. I joined some OP forums, researched the meds and decided I am not taking any of them. I will now be sure to eat a good healthy diet, exercise more and take my supplements. I am also going to ask the OP doctor for a bone turnover blood test, and a bone quality test. Thanks so much for this video. I feel so relieved believing that my choice is the best for me.

I am 79, soon to be 80. My Rheumatologist said to me, “if you were my mother, I wouldnt ask you to take Prolia, I would just jab you”. I had a DEXA scan two years ago and nothing has actually changed in my bone density, but it is noted that even if the bone density hasnt improved it hasnt worsened. I swing Kettlebells 3 x weekly, and apart from an ageing body, I dont have pain or am unable to walk. I deadlifted 32kgs which caused a stress fracture, possibly because I have Osteoporosis, my Rheumatologist posed the question “how many times do you have to break a bone before you’ll agree to taking Prolia”? I have refused.

Reclass almost killed me. When I took the transfusion I wasn't feeling good, I had tingling and numbness. I felt tired, and lightheaded. I had an appt to see my rhumotogist for routine checkup a week later, and told him what I was experiencing, and he said it had nothing to do with Reclass..after my visit I had the usual blood work done, driving home I felt worse, and blew 2 tires out because my judgment was off, and I cut too close to a pot hole, but it gets better. After getting towed home, I get a phone call from my Dr. to get to the hospital right away to have another test..It seems after the Reclass my bones sucked up all the calcium, and there was no calcium in my bloodstream. I avoided the hospital stay by having calcium infusions two nights in a row in Emergency unit..I was there 4 hrs both nights. That was 12 years ago, and funny how no mention of me having these bone medications again from my D.., in fact after having bone density tests done since then, I have improved in some areas..Weight bearing exercises is the answer.. The crappy part is that Reclass did have these known sides effects, and my Dr. Said it wasn't the Reclass. I just started taking Collagen peptides with MSM and I'm do for another bone density, I can't wait to see the results, but after this story, it will be my last bone density. I also started taking vit D3 with Vit k 2 combo. Please be careful..Its a damn shame we put so much trust in our Drs, because we think they really care about us. It's all about the money..Thank goodness we have Dr's like this one telling us the truth.

Height and weight charts originally took the size of the bones into consideration , and it categorized people into small, medium or large frames. It made perfect sense.

But.. turned out she was right in one aspect.. 46yrs later still no kids.. but why? simple.. contraception 😂 Back to subject on hand.. yep, stress your bones then they’ll build strength, don’t use them you’ll use them.

I'm so glad that I came upon your channel today. Thank you so much for this vital information! I was inadvertently diagnosed with osteopenia several years ago by a podiatrist but no medication was prescribed. Due to several painful conditions of my legs I have been advised by friends to stop walking (take the bus, have groceries delivered, etc,). I still walk, but less frequently. I will try harder to "use it" 'cause I surely do not want to "lose it." I really need to say this: FIRST, DO SOME HARM; NEXT, DO EVEN MORE HARM; FINALLY, DO EXTREME HARM WITH ONE HAND WHILE THE OTHER HAND (ALONG WITH BIG PHARMA'S TENTACLES) IS EMPTYING THE POCKETS OF THOSE WHO CAN LEAST AFFORD IT - OR MAYBE JUST SCAMMING MEDICARE.

Just saw your video, and just so happens, I had a bone density test. The results were just like you said they would say. Doctor wanted me to come in to discuss treatment options. My daughter is his nurse and had given me a heads up on the meds he would offer. So I researched them and looked at testimonials. None were positive. I told my daughter about it, so when confronted with the doctor, he said " I know you don't want to take the meds, so he told me to do bone building exercises. He says he will take another bone scan in 2 years. I've decided to opt out of that thanks to you. I always question any medicine they want me to have, now that I know how to look them up.

Petite but plenty of muscle mass and worked and exercised hard daily. I'm now 67 over the past few years since menopause I've been on numerous meds that have only made me sicker. I took the Fosamax for a few years before having my teeth removed. This caused serious issues getting my teeth out. The ones with caps and crowns were attached to my jaw bone with bone build up. No one said this could happen. Now I'll need more surgery just to make my dentures fit. I'm now told I have severe scoliosis along with degenerative arthritis of the spine as well as osteoporosis.

I agree for the most part part but: 1) there is a considerable amount of decrease in bone mass right after menopause (estrogen protecting effect of bones) which should be shown on your graph (if there is no hormone replacement therapy). 2) the scan can show the evolution over the years of the ability to absorb x-rays. 3) no need to be bedridden to experience bone fracture because of osteoporosis. A lot of fractures from “normal” brisk movements happen right after menopause in the case of very little bone mass and non-optimal nutrition combined with lack of exercise.

FINALLY!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 This is the most truthful explanation I’ve heard from a doctor. I won’t go into a whole long drug out story but I was told according to my DEXA scans, I had brittle bones. I read up on the medication’s and decided it was a hard pass. Being vegan, I don’t get a lot of collagen, but I do take high-quality, vegan supplements, including collagen, keep my protein equivalent, with my weight and I’m starting physical therapy soon. Just last week I had a hard fall that should’ve broken my hands, my elbow, my eyesocket bone and a couple other ones and guess what not one fracture. He’s right! I don’t trust any doctor that wants to put me on an allopathic medication and never once asks about my diet or my lifestyle. Thank you doc!

Thank you for this terrific info. It's not just what we consume (weight-bearing exercises notwithstanding), a large part is also knowing what not to have, and adhering to that 95% of the time! After my 1st 2 years of purposeful eating/avoidance and exercise incl much walking, my tests indicated an about-face where my osteoporosis is now diagnosed as osteopenia. This after quitting 22 yrs of meds, some of which caused brittle bones and ultimately became the subject of class-action lawsuits the world over. It was only after taking those prescribed bone meds that I started falling, frequently fracturing my ribs and extremities. It's 6+ yrs later and glad that has all ended for me. A food-based detox cleanse that helped propel me towards a more alkaline diet, learned to make food my meds and fuel (this means no bbq wings, pizza, etc.) It really really does work!!

Wow, I'm so glad to have heard this. My endocrinologist is pushing pills.. as well as my primary doctor. I had a low reading in a part of my hip and lower back starting 2 years ago. I religiously work out and pump weights and do several specific exercises to reach that lower spine area. I feel strong. The fact that the density scan showed improvement in the hip area tells me that what I am doing is working. I am hoping the 'xray' absorption will show the same in the future scan. However, I am less worried now. I added Osteo M.D bone density vitamins to my diet also. I am 63 years old. One other note. I have been on thyroid meds/levothyroxine for years.. so I believe that contributed to the bone loss.

I lived in a winter that often lasted 6 months ( Canada). No broken bones with falls. I am thankful to God of course. I have never taken the drugs . About 10 years ago I was out on desiccated thyroid and some bio identical hormones. I am doing my best to find the right diet for me. I do not do well on the vegan😂 diet . My body seems to require more protein and fat as wheat is something my body doesn’t seem to do well on . Doesn’t do well on wheat or beans and lentils. Really wonder if it’s all the years that we didn’t get enough sunlight in the northern climate. The problem was lack of vitamin D. where I live vitamin D tests are free if you have Osteopenia or osteoporosis.

I don't think it did any good and I wished I had researched it beforehand.. Had a recent DEXA and it's considerably worse than my last one! Right now I'm taking Vit. D3, magnesium, K2(7) and get calcium from food sources. By the way the author of Death By Calcium says that it actually is detrimental to health if you take a lot. What it does is end up in your blood vessels especially your heart because the bones can only absorb so much! I'll stick with my supplements and diet!

Thank you for this life changing information.My Doctor has me having bone scan every couple of years and then tells how bad my bones are.It is such a relief to know that the Dexia scan is not a good indicator of bone health.Exercise and diet is the answer.Thank you again.

My bone density scan alerted me to the sad state my bones are in. It has helped me prepare (but not prevent) the 2 broken hips nor 3 fractured vertebrae. It should be considered a tool to gauge bone durability and warn people of the risks associated with aging. It’s not junk science, it’s a useful resource for people.

Thank you Dr. Osborne. This was exactly the information given to me by a dentist not so long ago. Because I take a pill once a week, the dentist told me that any procedure for implants will have to be do😂ne by a surgeon in the emergency should there be complications of bone fracture because I take osteoporosis. This makes my bone soft and therefore could cause complications Even if I were to stop taking it would make no difference. Do or not to do

Thanks Doctor Hyman. You have been a help. I have one question, I took a med for ostiopina for a little over a year then stopped because I was concerned about side effects and felt that I had been pressured into taking it. Will my bones return to the normal process that you have explained in this video?

Wow, I'm 49yrs and I'm scheduled for a Dexa today at 2pm. They're checking me because I've been on Prednisone for years now and Rheumatologist is worried about bone loss. Thank you so much for this video. I feel so much more knowledgeable. I refused to take the bone loss meds they tried to give me. This is a great video. ❤️

I need to show this to my 70 yr old mother. She was told she has osteoporosis in her spine and it's gotten worse after taken phosemates...she now wants to take shots. I told her to investigate that. I had clients who were older, who took these phosemax shots and ended up losing teeth. My mom is extremely active too🤔

Thank you for this info. I'm in very good shape at 81, have always worked out my whole life. I got a Dexa Scan and of course you guessed it I had Osteoporosis. I didn't really believe this scan as it didn't look at my whole body nor the shape I'm in. They recommended a once a year infusion and also some drug which I refuse to do both. I have 6 classes a week and am adding more gravity to them as I do 4 pool classes. You are right how can you compare an 81 year old to a 35 year old that says a lot right there.

Thank you for your video. It certainly help me to understand the bone scan result.I was diagnose with osteoporosis only with one T score is -29.I am a 78yrs old lady and has been line dancing for the past 21years almost everyday and swim everyday during summer.Also the scan compare to my first scan which is 8 years ago are the same.My doctor is reluctant to treat it with drug.I am thankful that you explain the bone scan result so well which help me to understand I have a good doctor that does not just read the result of the DEXA scan.

Thank you Dr.Osborne for the information. My grandmother - who is past 80 - had her DEXA test and the doctor told her she had slight osteoporosis of the femur neck but a normal backbone. I asked the doctor if my grandmother could do a bone markers test as well but she rejected the request stating that the test was unnecessary and "not used" in medicine. Instead, she prescribed her bisphosphonates to take once a week. Can those drugs taken once a week really cause those secondary effects or are we talking about regular high doses here?

Thank you so much for this video. I am 74, have had several bone density tests and been diagnosed with Osteoporosis. I have refused to have Prolia, and one GP basically ditched me and was very rude because of this. I am still to find a GP who will support me in my decision not to take drugs. I do weight bearing exercise with a personal trainer twice a week, walk most days (4-8kms), dance, swim and have a healthy diet. I have had 2 reasonably "bad" falls over the last 5 years, however, I have never had a broken bone in my life! It depresses me to no end that each GP I visit, immediately wants me on Prolia because of the results of my bone density tests. I aim to keep searching until I find someone who will support me in maintaining my healthy life style and ageing well...without drugs. Thank you for this info, it has given me more determination!

Thank you so much for this detailed explanation. Several years ago I had the bone density test, my dr at that time said that I must start taking those drugs. I always research side effects etc., they were horrible. To me it was better to not take them. This dr was always recommending a lot of new medications. Ultimately I found a new dr whose goal was less meds, not more. Drs who push a lot of drugs do a terrible disservice to their patients, IMO, it breaks trust, I didn’t believe her after a while-her knee jerk reaction was always very quickly more meds (adding more than one at a time. My Pharmacist told me one time “you can’t take these two together, it could kill you”. Thank you 😊

My 83 year old mother had a bone density scan and shows no osteoporosis. She is active, eats tons of leafy greens and drinks plenty of milk. Takes no supplements whatsoever. She has her aches and pains but otherwise, fine.

So thankful for finding this video. I was just deciding if to take the medicine or no, may be is fourth time my Dr. has prescribed it but I was reluctant for all the side effects. I had bad osteoporosis he said, but then again I didn’t feel like taking that medicine. Thank you so much for enlightening us Doctor.

I had a bone scan and they prescribed meds like you said and I took one, was so sick from it … I never took another pill. Thank heavens 😊 the family doctor keeps setting up a scan every year and I told her I didn’t want one because I wasn’t going to take the medication! I’d rather lift weights and eat yogurt 😊

I had a Dexa scan at aged 60 and I've been uber fit all my life - Running,Rowing,Spinning Classes Sit ups etc etc etc I went into shock when they told me I have Severe osteoporosis of the spine and I'm also allergic to Bisphoshonates - I have non responsive Coeliac Disease - I genuinely thought I was just a ticking time bomb - Thank you 🙏for putting my mind at ease ❤

Thank you for such an informative and helpful video. Since bone continues to replace, grow , it is my understanding that such foods as seaweed are helpful as well as walking, jumping; low impact activity. Unfortunately some doctors recommend calcium pills plus vitamin D as the only and best treatment. From what I haven learned using calcium only without other minerals, like Vitamin K, and magnesium can accumulate in the blood system and contribute to "hardening of the arteries." Vitamin K, magnesium help the bone regenerate and push with calcium absorption. The bone grows, the blood healthier and isn't just a brittle housing enclosing never ending hollowing of bone material.

This video is great confirmation that I did the right thing when I refused to take medication for osteoporosis that my doctor said I had. I read the side affects and threw the pills away.

Many doctors are now pushing Prolia and stating it is not a bisphosphonate and thus a better option. However, from what I have read, it still stops the breakdown of bone. I would appreciate your thoughts on denosumab vs. bisphosphonate Rx recommendations.

Thank-You ! My doctor put me on a bone med way back in my 40s. Much later he took me off of it because of the brittle bone risk. All this time I had osteopenia. When I hit osteoporosis the doctor put me back of the bone med. it’s scary to think these doctors are not understanding the truth. As of watching your video I’m going off the bone med.
