Am I the only person who strontium did not help?

I have taken Strontium faithfully for 2 years and my DEXA scan this week showed worsening (from 2.0 to 2.2) .. I was SO disappointed and am at a loss of what to do next. Any suggestions? I take 1200 Calcium and 5000 Vit D daily.

Re: Am I the only person who strontium did not help?

Hi Judy, sorry to hear that SC didn't work for you. You're still in the osteopenia range, which is still good, and have a ways to go before crossing into osteo. Has your doctor checked to see of you have any secondary causes for your loss in density? Is he concerned about the decrease? Are you doing weight bearing exercises and eating a mostly good diet? There are so many factors that go into bone making.

Give yourself some time to get over the shock and then get back to doing what you need to do for your bones. Have you read the book The Myth of Osteoporosis by Gillian Sansone? Its a different POV than mainstream osteo books and will give you not only a lot of good info, but also a different perspective. take care, phyllis
I am so much more than a score, I am strong, healthy, active and like to help others.
