When taking strontium its recommended that you take 1000 mg. calcium daily to keep things in balance. You need both, but not at the same time. 1000 to 2000 mg of D3 would not be considered excessive. Drs. often prescribe as much as 50,000mg. when someone is deficient, but that is under a dr. care. If you have more questions call your dr. back and voice your concerns. I'm not familiar with forteo.
Living at the beach sounds great to a mid western rural liver like me. Is it warm enough to surf now? take care...phyllis
She was trained in Europe and has a practice in Europe also. She primarily works with Olympic Athletes here in the States and she herself used to be an Olympic athlete. I spend a lot of time abroad. It is SR. I have SC also in 340 doses, but I do not take it.
I surf year around. Surfing is better in the winter and there is little to no waves in the summer in which to surf unless we have a storm or a hurricane. Last week, I surfed three days as there was a waist to chest high swell most of last week. It is gone now, but should be back up this week with a front moving through today. We wear wetsuits in the winter.
The water temperature right now is 76 degrees and feels great without a wetsuit. I am on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida and feel blessed to live here. I love the ocean.
I had a US endo prescribe for me the 50,000 dose one a week for four weeks. I did not take. I have heard too much bad about that high of a dose. I am trying to monitor my D levels and my D 1,25 runs high so it seems my body is converting D 25 to compensate for blood calcium levels even though my D25 or D3 can run low to mid range.
At one point, I was ODing on calcium so I try to be careful, especially when on the Forteo. I am kind of spooked about taking 1,000 in calcium supplements while on the Forteo as I get some in my vitamins, protein drinks and regular diet.
