Thyroid a factor for osteoperosis? I'm also on Strontium

Hi all, I haven't posted in a long time. I'm still on Strontium, but haven't had a DEXA for almost 2 years. I'm sure it is helping, the last DEXA had improvement.

In the meantime, I've been hit MAJORLY by Hashimoto's (thyroid). Long story...I'm looking for a new doctor. I've been trying to absorb everything I can learn about the thyroid and in a couple of sources it has mentioned Osteoperosis as another one of the ways it affects people (as if the 300+ other symptoms aren't enough).

When it was finally discovered, I was having a lot of muscle weakness (even though I exercise religiously) and was falling (but, praise God, no broken bones). I guess the medication might help as well, but the major good changes came when I started loosely following the Paleo Diet and included some supplements.

Just wondering if anyone else with Osteopeorsis might have thyroid issues....?
