Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

The Endo doctor I went to years ago was described as a bone specialist. He's written books on osteoporosis. He said to me that it could be my form was mild and he said my slow developing teeth...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

I know what you mean by Anabolic but I wonder how a doctor would be creating this? Would that mean creating a supplement ?

Evista and Forteo are supposed to be anabolic. The Evista acts like...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

I never fractured anything as a child either, and only started to get stress fractures in my feet in my 30's. This was a time of lots of running and not wearing the right shoes. So...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

One more thing to consider. When I saw my Endo bone specialist years ago before I was menopausal he had suggested that I might possibly have a mild form of Osteogenesis Imperfecta. That would be...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

Are you saying that you already saw the Endo? Did he recommend Fosamax? Did the Endo have you do a urine collection test to check for bone loss rate?

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

I know what you mean about panicking. I think it would be nice to find a doctor to confirm what ever we ourselves believe to be right. Have you seen a good endocrinologist? I had seen a...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

Stress is not good for bones. It releases Cortisol which deteriorates bones. When I was a teen I had a couple years when my period stopped. I also went through a time of exercising some 4 to 5...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

The exercise you do sounds great. I wonder if all that might have resulted in a low body fat, and perhaps lower estrogen levels? Have you missed periods? When I was young I had low body fat...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

Are you short with a thin frame? One thing to note is that what they consider to be normal is not based on short tiny women. Short tiny women will not attain the same peak bone mass as heavier...

Re: 25 years old just diagnosed with osteoporosis

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis at age 40 when I got my first DEXA. I did see specialists and basically came to the conclusion that the low bone mass was what my peak bone mass was. In other...
