I got some great news yesterday that I wanted to share. I have had osteoporosis for the past 5 years, maybe longer, but that was when I had my first DEXA scan. I took Fosomax for almost 3 years, then quit because it wasn't improving my t-scores, and I was concerned about all the potential side effects. About 6 months ago a woman who was doing some physical therapy for me told me about a product, Algaecal, that a friend of hers had taken and said it really improved her bone health, so I bought some. I got a follow up DEXA yesterday and WOW, my t-scores are really improved. I have gone from -2.7 in my right femeral neck to -2.0, and from -2.3 in my left femeral neck to -1.7. The only things I have changed is to go completely off diary as even though it is high in calcium, it is also very acidic and your body wants to be alkaline, so the bones secrete calcium to counteract the acid, and started taking AlgaeCal. I haven't seen the full report yet but those were my biggest problem areas. I'm really pleased. I had decided that if my bones had gotten any worse since going off the Fosomax a year ago, that I would start it again, but they got so much better. I just wanted to share as even though this has nothing to do with hair loss, it is definitely an issue many of us deal with.
