American Academy of Oral medicine research article

I have a paper entitled "Managing the care of patients with bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis" (2005). It's a hard copy so there's no website I can provide, but one particular paragraph stood out. Here it is:


Muscles get strong from exercise because weightlifting produces microtears in the fibres. When these microtears heal, the result is a stronger muscle. It sounds as if the same process applies to the bones. Here we go again....bisphosphonates may increase BMD, but they certainly don't make a stronger bone. Why is it that the medical community can't understand this??

Thank you for posting a portion of the article - this is one of the main reasons that I don't want to take IV bisphosphonates for sure.

I disagree, since studies have consistently shown that bisphosphonates substantially reduce the risk of fracture.

I don't intend to take bisphosphonates either, but I don't think they are worthless poison.

Hi Starfish,

Thanks for that interesting post. I have to agree with what the author states, seems to make good sense to me.
