Results of clinical trials indicated that Prolia reduced spinal fractures by 68% and hip fractures by 40% over 3 years. Once Prolia is discontinued you may likely lose what you've gained. Side effects won't be known until thousands have used Prolia for years.

    Some people love this book, but frankly it scared the hell out of me. It is full of nightmarish what-can-go-wrong anecdotes. How negative can you get? I instantly looked for hope, got Algeacal and Strontium Citrate and got rid of this book. It might be good if you don't have bone problems yet but if it makes you take poison (the common American approach, no thanks to Sally Fields), I cannot see how it can be considered beneficial.

    This is one of the most complete treatments (no pun intended) of bone health I've seen in the past few years. It covers everything from a non-technical and comprehensible description of osteoporosis and its various diagnostic tools and treatment options to proper nutrition and excercise for bone health. There are enough cautionary statements to give any reader pause, but as Dr. Simpson is encouraging the reader to be a full partner in treatment and understanding, that isn't necessarily a bad thi This is one of the most complete treatments (no pun intended) of bone health I've seen in the past few years.

There are enough cautionary statements to give any reader pause, but as Dr. Simpson is encouraging the reader to be a full partner in treatment and understanding, that isn't necessarily a bad thing! I read a library copy of this book but am considering purchasing a copy to have on my home shelf for reference purposes. If you're interested in learning more about your bones and how to care for them, especially as you age, I'd highly recommend this book.

    After a recent diagnosis I was looking for more information. This book was one of the two that helped me understand my disease more than a doctor visit...or two...or three...could.
