Calcitonin for elderly osteoporosis--advice?
The brilliant minds at the MDA forum often know more than I, so I'm hoping for advice or information. My grandma is suffering from bad lower back pain that the doctor believes is a compression fracture due to advancing osteoporosis. The doctor wants her to use the hormone calcitonin as a nasal spray to encourage bone health and reduce pain.
I'm already giving her D3 and have encouraged her to take magnesium without success. Any ideas I should try? She literally cannot walk right now from the pain.
