In Topic: Osteopenia - No Improvement In Scan Results

28 April 2013 - 01:47 PM

Finally, got a bone scan. :mellow:

 

I was Dx'ed with osteoporous of the lumbar spine (T-2.7), osteopenia of the left hip (T-1.7) and Femoral Neck (T-2.3).

Vit D was normal at 41.0 (range:30.0-100.0). The other bone nutrients calcium (serum=9.7) and albumin (serum=4.5) were normal. However, I still need to determine if an imbalance of phosphorous and PTH exist.

 

My PCP Rx'ed generic Fosamax, 70 mg, 1 tab/week. I opted to take Country Life's Calcium (1000mg)/Magnesium(500mg)/Phosphorus(500mg).  These Target-Mins are CGF.

Also, to boost Vit D level, I'm taking 1000 IU, 1 tab/daily.

 

Only time will tell if this treatment improves T values for me.  


In Topic: Real Life With celiac disease - Excellent Resource Book

31 March 2013 - 04:00 PM

I read it. Consider it my bible of celiac disease. I will recommend it to my GI/ PCP so we will be on equal level.

 

Just to follow up.

To date, my PCP (of 14 months) won't read this book.  He said it's not his job, has no interest or time in reading books on specific diseases and tells me to direct my questions regarding celiac/gluten issues to my GI Doctor.

Cut back to 1/day with your heaviest meal. 


In Topic: Which Probiotics

27 March 2013 - 03:03 PM

My nutritionist told me to take a minimum of 50 billion. I was taking 100B for about a month. 

I don't have a nutritionist to date, so thanks for posting. I'll stay with my 50B brand for a while.


In Topic: How Do I Use Multiquote? Help Please.

26 February 2013 - 04:38 PM

:DThat's sort of like having a PhD in multiquoting.

 

Just giving this option a whirl.

 

For those who want to, you can select multiple posts for quotation in more than one thread. Here is one from from the ingredients forum:
Quotes within quotes is an advanced topic, requiring pasting and editing beyond the norm. But as shown, it can be done.

If Darn won't, I can have a go at it. I don't do Photobucket like she does...

 ......... and hey, it worked.  I learned something new today. thanks.
