Boron/Jarrow Ultra Bone-up for osteoporosis?

Recommended Posts

IF you can get your medical insurer to approve it.  I have excellent medical insurance; it was approved for 2 years.  (The FDA approval for the drug is phrased in a way that gives insurers "an escape clause) to deny the expensive drug after two years of use).  With difficulty, I obtained approval for renewals for several more years.  This ended recently.  Each one month supply has some extra shots in it; I've saved cylinders for the whole time, expecting to get cut off.  So I'm now dosing only twice weekly.  With what I've saved, I have enough for a little over 3 years.  (I've checked with one of the original researchers on Forteo and other PTH (or PTHRP) peptide researchers.  Twice weekly dosing should work).  When I run out, I plan to purchase tymlos, a drug that binds to the same receptor (a PTHRP peptide) -- it's cheaper -- and also use it twice weekly (unless the FDA drops its escape clause for drug manufacturers).

OH i checked again and there's a slight improvement. Still low so I have to continue the supplements. I did the second dexa after taking a few of those bone supplements (+ staying at parents for a bit). so spiro didn't decrease it, after all. The scan results above were official and kind of scary so I need to continue supplementing!
