Question A Couple Questions...

I am 37 years old and I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis 4 years ago. My last scan 2 years ago was my spine -3.4 my hip -3.9

I am out of work, no insurance. I do not qualify for medicaid her in LA. Baisicly I am not able to see a doctor since I can't afford it. I am lucky to get my calcium.

I have had several fractures that I home treated. Since I can't afford any health care at this time.

I do take my calcium faithfully and I try to walk daily.

I have also had all of my teeth removed. My uppers were removed when I was 21, my lowers when in 2001.

I am noticing now that I am getting bone chip coming up through my gums on the bottom. To me this is kind of weird, it has been a long time since their extraction. Has anyone ever heard of this?

I just learned about Strontium the supplement. How well does it work?

Re: A Couple Questions...

I would say go to a free dental clinic to find out about the bone chips coming up from your gums. Call Social Services in your area to find out where either dental schools are or free clinics.
