    Good DEXA results after one year on Strontium

    Hi all,

    I've been on Strontium since exactly one year ago. Here are my new DEXA results. I cut the percent increases by 50% to allow for the Strontium (in parentheses):

    My spine (L1-L4) is -3.0. Last year it was -3.3. That's a 4.3% increase.
    (2.15%)

    My forearm (total radius) is -1.2. Last year it was the same.

    My hip: Femoral neck mean is -2.1. Last year it was -2.5. No percentage calculated for me here and I can't do it !!

    Total proximal femoral mean is -1.4. Last year it was -1.9. That is an increase of 7.7% (so really 3.85%).

    My urine calcium and creatinine were both normal. My NTX was 53, down from 59 last year, but still too high (according to my Dr.) I did not go off the Strontium for 30 days before the DEXA scan as others have.

    The very underwhelmed interpretation notes on the report refer to my spine as "stable" and the increase in my hip as "mild". I, however, am very happy with my results - after years on Actonel with no improvement. I will continue taking the Strontium !!

    What wonderful news. Its great when hard work pays off and even better when it improves our health. I'm always glad when a strontium user post their results, just more evidence that it is safe and effective. take care...phyllis

    Great News, just wonder how much strontium you were/are taking, and I like the idea that
    you did not get off strontium for the 30 days prior to your testing.
    Best and lets hope we all get such good results.

    Hi! I take 2,000 mg. of Vitamin D, about 1,200 of Calcium, 200 magnesium and a multivitamin that contains a little of all of those. The only exercise I do is walking (I try to go everyday, but...) and yoga (twice a week). No weight training, but I know I should.

    Hi, I take two capsules at night before bed - which is 680 mg. of strontium citrate, either Doctor's Best or NSI, whichever I can get cheaper at the time. Never had any side effects, so it's been easy for me to take and stay with it.
