I recently went to the NPC and had two adenomas removed. It has now been 8 weeks since the surgery and I just received the post op blood work results. My calcium is now 9.8 (instead of in the 10's); my PTH is in the 40's; magnesium 2.3 and vitamin D 50. Going to the Center is something I do not regret at all. They know what they're doing and do it well. The reason I choose not to "wait ... Read More

I have had severe osteoporosis and have been on Forteo for nearly 18 months and it has been helping as I had a recent Dexascan and it has shown that my spine although still in the osteoporosis category isn't as bad. However over the past months, I have been experiencing some bone/joint pain as well as have been very tired. I had recent blood work done which showed that my D level was ... Read More

We wake in the morning, and we think "another day....how will I face it.....what will I do with it, and will it count for any thing? Do we look at the new day like "this is how it SHOUD BE," or do we say "This is how it will be"? We get up in the morning with pre-conceived ideas of how the day should progress, and those pre-conceived ideas are not always based in our own reality! And ... Read More

Sleep.........a very precious commodity, that becomes hard to come by, when one suffers from chronic pain and discomfort, of any sort. Sleep is a complex subject, and we will hardly even scratch the surface of it here, but....let's talk about it anyhow!

hi I am going to start forteo and I am having trouble finding a calcium supplement. I cannot swallow large pills and most of the citrate forms are large. I cannot tolerate the additives in the chewable because of food sensitivities. Doc says I could take tums as calcium and for some reason the yellow ones do not cause issues for me. I know tums are carbonate but has anyone taken d3 ... Read More

Hello, I'm in the UK and having done my research I decided to buy Carlson Labs, Vitamin K2, 5 mg, 180 Capsules from Amazon. It seems impossible to find anything with a higher dosage. The well known Japanese studies show that 45mg is the amount required. So my question is, do you take 45mg - i.e. 9 of these (or an equivalent) a day; is 5mg a day (as suggested on the bottle) a complete ... Read More
