Hi Everyone-last night I was doing some internet research on Strontium (am seriously considering taking it-waiting first of all for my appointment with the new endocrinologist in town-who'd better not push a script for anything at me
). Anyway, I've noticed some questions about "calibrating" the DEXA machine differently for strontium users. Wish I could remember the site, but apparently the way it works is whatever % gain in BMD you get, consider half of it due to the strontium crystals' appearance and half of it actual increase in BMD. All my DEXA printouts have given a percentage (always losses in my case
) so just take half of whatever % they say you've gained.
Also, the non-Rx strontium aparently comes in citrate, lactate, and gluconate forms. Although the only one I've been able to find available on-line is the citrate form, research states that the gluconate form is the most readily absorbed.
Have any of the strontium users on these boards been able to locate this in gluconate form?
