Has or is anyone ever taken an osteoporosis medication called Strontium Ranelate?
I have osteoporosis and have been taking Alendronate, but I could not get on with them. Due to their side effects. I have now been prescribed Strontium Ranelate.
If so. Does anyone know much about these and if they have had any side effects. Thank you so much.
i just go through this website http://www.osteoporosis.net might be useful to you.

How can you tell if you have Osteoporosis?
What are some of the warning sings and symptoms & How can you prevent it? I'm 15 and I have low estrogen levels which makes you at higher risk of getting Osteoporosis, and lately my knees have been feeling achey and weak. How can I prevent from getting it?
There are no warning signs.
Get plenty of calcium. Right now you are building bones.
Your knees most likely have nothing to do with it at your age.
Get enough calcium and vitamin D
Osteoporosis is diagnosed by a bone density scan. (+ info

How can I prevent osteoporosis while I am a teenager?
How can I prevent osteoporosis while I am a teenager?
Not only osteoperosis, but any other illness that generally develops during agin?
You can drink milk or calcium-fortified drinks, or even anything that has calcium. Osteoporosis is a bone condition in which your bones become brittle and calcium makes them stronger.
Another way to prevent osteoporosis is by exercising. The exercise will strengthen the muscles around the bone, thus supporting them so that they don't break.
And once again, eat healthy because its just good for you :)!
I hope this helps. (+ info
What's a good mattress for a woman with advanced osteoporosis?
My grandma is always buying new mattresses because she wakes up hurting. We all think it's just her osteoporosis. So, is there a mattress out there that can relieve the pressure and ease pain while still providing the necessary support. please provide all the details possible. thanks!
I'm hoping for answers from those who have family members with experience.
The sleep number bed is the best. You can adjust the hard to soft settings that adjust to your body.
Now why not deal with the osteoporosis issue from a nutrition angle. If your grandmother is eating low fat, high carb type diets and does not eat much meat, she needs to change. If she takes ANY ANTACIDS, this is causing huge problems with her calcium absorption.
The blood calcium level must be maintained at all costs between about 7.35 and 7.4 pH. If your body goes out of this range, you die. So there is a constant exchange of calcium between, first your muscles, and then your bones to give up and take on calcium to maintain that blood calcium level.
In order for you to digest calcium, magnesium, and zinc, you need an acid stomach to do so. As the chime from the stomach enters the jejunum (upper part of the small intestines), it must be acidic for those minerals to be absorbed through the intestinal walls. If it is not acidic, it won't get absorbed and you will become deficient. Now when your blood calcium screams for more calcium, yep, you got it, it takes it from the muscles (you get cramps easily) and then from your bones (you get osteoporosis).
Doctors will give you calcium supplements, but all this does is pass down the intestines and end up as toxins and is stored in the eyes as cataracts, bone spurs, etc.
You need to get your grandma digesting properly and then on a high quality calcium, not the typical calcium carbonate garbage (this is blackboard chalk and cheap to make). The typical calcium given to patients also just addresses the bone mass and not the quality of the bones.
I suggest you try the following and watch what happens. I think you will be very surprised at how well this works.
Go to: www.healthline.cc (not .com) and order the following:
Betaine HCL --- Take 2 to 4 of after each meal.
Activator --- Take 1 to 2 of these after each meal.
Quantum Digest --- Take 2 of these DURING the meal.
Probiotic -- take 1 in the a.m. and 1 in the p.m.
Coral Complex -- Take 4 of these in the a.m. and 4 in the p.m.
She also needs to address any vitamin B-12 deficiencies due to not eating meat, if that is the case. If she is eating lots of vegetable oils, this will contribute to the osteoporosis problem because it contributes to inflammation of the body. Vegetable oils are terrible for you because they convert to TRANS FATS when heated even slightly due to the polymerization of the fatty acid chains. They are also very high in omega 6 inflammatory fatty acids and very unstable due to the double bonds that convert the omega 3 "cis" configuration into the omega 6 "trans" configuration.
Make sure she gets her diet regulated toward: 40% carbs (nutrient dense), 30% fats, and 30% proteins.
The fats should be in the following ratio: 60% monounsaturated (from Olive oil), 30% Saturated fats (from Real RAW BUTTER made from raw cream, coconut oil, and beef from GRASS FED COWS, not the commercial garbage sold in Mausoleums where dead food is found), and 10% Polyunsaturated fats (omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in a balance of 1:1 ratio).
The above will truly help her body to digest better and also absorb the calcium. The Coral complex has all the cofactors necessary to make the absorption even better. It also contains the 2:1 calcium to magnesium ratio to nourish the body. She will immediately find that she has to cut her nails very frequently as well.

I have a sharp pain in my thigh have been diagnosed with osteoporosis of lumber spine what is the treatment?
I have severe pain in my upper leg. An x ray was taken which showed that there was no problem with my bone. Recently i was advised by my doctor to take another x ray of the cervical spine and the lumbar spine which revealed that i have a condition termed as 'osteoporosis of the lumber spine'. That there is 'a gentle scoliosis concave to the right'. Could it be that this is the cause of the pain in my leg and what is the treatment.
I don't know if I go along with what he is telling you. A sharp pain in your hip, is that also making it a little harder to walk? Very often the tendon that attaches your leg to your body shortens up, as tendons will do now and then, and when that happens your thigh is pulled into your hip. The reason for that happening is that the tendon for that leg comes in at the pelvic region and attaches there. Very often women feel they aer having cramps as this tendon pulls on the insides where it is attached which is in the same area that cramps are felt. As your thigh is pulled into your body the ball and socket can't glide over each other as they should and that is where the walking problem comes in. Here is how you can release that tendon:
With only shorts on lay on a bed and pull your legs up and bend them at the knee so your feet are flat on the bed. Take your hand and run it down the crease between your thigh and body. When you reach the area of your pelvis you will feel a bump in that crease. That is the tendon to work on. Take it between your fingers and thumb and press and hold a good amount of pressure on it. Then relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After 30 seconds slowly lower your leg outward until it has gone as far as it will. Then release the pressure but rest your leg there for one minute longer. As a side note, if you cannot get a grip on the tendon, press on it near the pelvis with as much pressure as you can. Don’t let it slip out from under that pressure. Then continue with the rest of the exercise.
For your back I feel there is something of the same thing going on. I feel that if there is one side of your spine out of whack, you have to look at what is wrong with the other side, what is making it pull the way it is. I don't think our spines can go out of place by themselves. They have to be pulled and the only way they can stay out of place is by having something tight holding it out of place. If that wasn't the case the spine should be equal and in it's rightful place and no pain. Out of place, pinched or tight muscle and pain. Here is how you can release your back muscles which should help in that area:
Place your left hand on your left knee. Place your right hand over your left shoulder and with your fingertips find the muscle next to your spine. Press on it and hold. Relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After about 30 seconds there should be a release happening and when it does slowly lower yourself forward onto your right leg. If you can lean over the outside edge of your leg it will be better for your release. Continue holding for a total of one minute. Then release but rest your body there for one minute longer. Then reverse and do the right side.
Because what you described is so close to the end of your spine, here is one more that goes after that very part. These releases can be used right down to the end of your tailbone and get releases. It should be good for 3 or 4 releases on your buttocks:
For lower back, on the buttocks:
Put both hands behind your back and place them on the muscles alongside your spine and press on them and hold. Now relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. When the release starts to happen, slowly lower yourself forward as far as you can go. Then release the pressure but hold your body there for one minute longer.

why do white people get skin cancer and osteoporosis so fast ?
they tend to get skin cancer quicker than other races and osteoporosis why is this ?
well i was only half guessing but i found this
''The melanin is the skin pigment and is responsible for the color of our epidermis. When taking sunbaths the melanin in our inner skin layer gives the tan of the skin - because the melanin changes its color. Therefore, people that have a darker skin have more melanin.
It is true that the extra-melanin offers them higher protection from UV radiation, but this does not mean that they are totally free of risk. Even darker skinned men can get skin cancer, because UVA rays are highly harmful and can penetrate to the deepest layers of the epidermis.
The melanin consists in the melanocyte cells. The melanocyte cells are responsible for the melanoma that causes cancer in people that take frequent and prolonged sunbaths. The cancerous mutations within the skin come from the uncontrollably growing number of melanocyte.'' (+ info

Does a person with a clear hunchback have osteoporosis, and how to get the back straightened?
My aunt is in her mid 60s and she is an active housewife but I've noticed for the past decade or so, that her back has begun to hunch more and more. Is this the condition known as osteoporosis? Is there a sort of treatment that will enable my aunt to get her back straightened upright back to normal? Thanks in advance.
Yes, that's due to osteoporosis. She needs to start taking calcium, and a drug like Fosamax. (+ info
