    Question Anyone Else Dx'd w/Osteomalacia ??Or Vitamin D Deficiency?

    I'm just curious whether anyone else has been diagnosed with osteomalacia as well as osteoporosis? Have you been diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency?

    If so, how are you treating the osteomalacia or vitamind D deficiency? How are you treating the osteoporosis? How long have you been treating for either one or both?

    I have a friend who is diagnosed with Osteo and Vit D deficiency, not sure what the other diagnosis you mention is. He is being treated with Forteo and 50,000units/day of Vit D and is improving.

    Thanks for responding, Taape. Wow! 50,000 IU of vitamin D daily??? Sheesh! I thought "I" was on a high dose at 100,000 IU of vitamin D ONCE A WEEK! Glad to hear that he is improving! Gives me more hope as my Endo has stated she intends to start me on Forteo ... I just don't know WHEN and am getting impatient.
