Not yet but shortly. I met with the endocrinologist about a month ago and agreed to start Prolia. I've been talking to my PCP about it for a while but had to see a specialist. I did two courses of Reclast about 6 years ago but it didn't work.
I had my annual labs done about 3 months ago and but have to have another Vit D and CMP labs done. She never said anything about a low calcium number. Mine is based on my latest bone density. The endo thinks that Prolia is the right next step.

My Endo is concerned that if my calcium isn't in the medium to high range once I'm given the prolia injection my calcium could drop which could cause issues so in order to increase my calcium levels he provided a 24 hour urine analysis to see what was going on with my calcium.
it seems that my kidneys were not processing my calcium as well So a simple water pill has seen to improve my calcium numbers I go back Friday for an updated CMP and if my calcium is high enough I am assuming I get my 1st injection
I have had 2 wrist fractures. I had fortero for 2 years and saw great bone growth with that but now I need prolia to solidify those efforts
My wife (DS 5/05) has been on it for several years now, after being on Fosamax before. She skipped a year for some dental work that contraindicated its use, but her last Dexa showed some regrowth in one area and insignificant loss in another, so it seems to be at least maintaining things.
