: : i heard there is a new treatment for osteoperosis,could someone tell me what it is and where in can find some info on it?Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

: Dear Steve:
: My mom is suffering from osteoporosis and have several fractures in her L1, L2, L3, and L4.
: The only new treatment is a drug called Raloxophine which starts showing its effect after one year.

: Ther is a surgical prodedure that eleminates pain and it is called "Kyphoplasty". It is being prformed in hospitals and clinics all arround USA.
: And not available in Canada!!!!!!!?????????? :(
: These sites might be of interest to you:
: www.kyphon.com / intelihealth.com
: and you can search about kyphoplasty in your favorit search engin such as Altavista or Metacrawler. Just type kyphoplasty and you will be amazed.
: I stopped all of mom's medication, with her doctor consent, and giving her a daily dose of 1500 mlg. of Calcium, 600 IU of vitamin D, and 600 mlg. of Ipriflavone. this is the fastest way to gain 1% - 2% more bone mass within 6 months. please consult with your doctor before you do any thing.

Thanks for the info. I was just diagnosed with osteoporosis and I am trying to learn as much as I can about this disease. All the info points to ERT as the best treatment but due to a family history, I feel that is not an option for me. I see the Dr next week so I want to be informed. If anyone has additional info please let me know. Thanks
