This weekend is Aunt Henrietta’s 90th birthday. I have just the right gift for her, Adora Premium Chocolates. My Aunt Henrietta has been our posterchild since the beginning of Cedar Valley Bone Health Institute of Iowa. Her adventures are well chronicled.
I had to tell her Endocrinologist about the Anabolic, Forteo. She agreed to give herself a daily shot. Then she proved that treatment had worked by falling down the stairs and not breaking anything.
Finally she locked in the gains of Forteo by starting the Antiresorptive that gets along with her severe GERD and aging kidneys, Prolia.
She can live alone in her own home because she Took Control of her bone health, with Calcium, Vitamin D3, Protein, Multiple Vitamins and Minerals, and Osteoporosis Medications. They are all necessary.
Happy Birthday Aunt Henrietta!

Again we have a patient whose Spine BMD has dropped despite good osteoporosis medication. She takes 500 mg Calcium at breakfast and at supper. She remembers that you can only absorb 5-600 mg Calcium at a meal. But what about lunch? She needs at least 200 mg more calcium in her day.
She plans to eat a yogurt for lunch. This would get her to her minimum of 1200 mg Calcium daily – if only she remembered more than once a week. We need to entice her with a “nooner”. We need her to crave her calcium. Adora Premium Chocolates could do it.
Once again we are warned of the dangers of calcium supplements. Once again those studies cited prescribed supplements without regard to total calcium intake, including diet. What matters is total calcium intake, including diet.
I prescribe a lot of Calcium Citrate for my patients. I would prefer not to. Dietary Calcium is more easily digested than supplements, and appears to hold fewer dangers than Calcium Carbonate or other calcium supplements. Unfortunately, we have lost our taste for calcium rich foods. There are tasty choices.
Aunt Henrietta has beaten Severe Osteoporosis with high dose Vitamin D, Adora Calcium Premium Chocolates, Forteo, and now Prolia. I have written about her adventures with a throw rug, her bifocals, unexpected black ice, and her attic stairs. Recently she tangled with Superstorm Sandy.
Aunt Henrietta lives in the steeply hilly part of New Jersey, far from the ocean. No ocean storm surge there. However, heavy rain, high winds, shallow soils, older trees, and narrow, twisting roads strung with power lines combined to almost do her in. All she had was candles, layers of sweaters, and her stubborness (of which she has quite a lot).
