Exercise program osteoporosis

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise program osteoporosis


Avatar n tn Hi, all. I am a 59 year old petite, postmenopausal, woman with osteoporosis. My lumbar spine score is -3.1 I do not want to use the meds which are available and wonder if anyone here successfully improved their scores via focused exercise, weight vests, and dietary adjustments? I read one woman's account online about how she turned it around completely using natural options and lots of discipline, but I want to be realistic.
Avatar n tn I'm 17 weeks into an exercise program to recover from being pretty deconditioned. Starting out with 10 minute walks, and now I walk 30 minutes or go 20 minutes on my elliptical trainer every day. My resting heart rate has dropped from mid 80s to low 70s, and anxiety or mild exertion doesn't send my heart rate above 100 like it used to. But the last couple weeks, I've noticed that my heart rate has been going up more rapidly on the elliptical trainer.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me that I have Osteoporosis and wants me to try Forteo an injection for two years. Has anyone tried this drug and what were your side effects, if any. I don't want to make my stomach problems worse than there already are.
Avatar f tn I saw the breast cancer question posted by a member here mention she was taking Bonista, the medication for Osteoporosis. As far as I have researched, the only serious risk known for the teriparatide is bone cancer, not breast cancer. Hope this helps! As for myself, I am a patient suffering from severe osteoporosis. My doctor, realizing I cannot afford Forteo ($950 per month!), has suggested I try to find how I can take the equivalent, generic version, which is Bonista.
Avatar n tn can anyone help me out with some information on what is going on here, her osteoporosis does not seam to be getting any worse, as she is on meds and really diets well to help herself, but the pain is what i am worried about, pain killers do not work at all, she can't have anti inflams for some reason, either heart or ulcer or something... what can she do for the pain??
Avatar f tn Dear Jeannette, My name is Patrick and I'm an exercise physiologist. About 6 years ago I developed an exercise program for individuals suffering from Ostosporosis. As Dr. Paul already mentioned your case is rather different becouse you also have Myathenia Gravis. The important thing to remember is that weight-bearing exercise is what you should be doing. Now please don't confuse weight-bearing with weight lifting.
Avatar f tn I need to find a moderate- intermediate exercise program while I'm pregnant. I'm nine weeks today. And I'm already showing... I'd really like to keep the weight gain healthy instead of excessive. If anyone knows where I can find a program like that let me know. Thank you!
109530 tn?1279743796 I went today for a bone density test - I have bad osteoporosis. The doctor thought I was too young - guess not! Anyhow - I see the neurologist for MS screening on Monday. Anyone know how common osteoporosis is with MS? Thanks for any information!
Avatar f tn I used to do a similar style of circuit class but once I found out I was pregnant., my doctor said to stick to low-moderate intensity exercise particularly for the first trimester. To be honest I've been too tired to even think about doing those classes!
Avatar f tn While exercising I think I may have pulled my groin and thigh area from vigorous leg exercise. It is very stiff in the morning and takes me a while to get going. Now I'm afraid to move.Could the vitamin D defieciency have contributed to the muscle strain? What treatment could I use to ease the morning stiffness.I also have some stiffness when I sit for a long time and then try to walk can be very painful.I take an occasional advil for it. Thank you.
Avatar m tn If a person has a history of drinking too much water and has osteoporosis because of it and therefore needs to limit the fluid intake, in gauging how much fluid intake one should have, should the following be included in the category of fluid: 1. Milk, whole or skim 2. Yogurt 3.
Avatar f tn // Because supplmenting with anything can impact you, we do recommend you consult with someone. Even a nutritionist. Calcium, vitamin D, and magnesium are important for bone health. Recommendations of what amount to take would be best with someone that knows your medical history. Even a nutritionist could be of benefit to you. Are you doing weight bearing exercise by the way?

Avatar m tn Some professionals think that it is a precursor to the development of osteoporosis, a type of bone disease. Despite this, not all cases of osteopenia lead to that condition. Causes Various factors can be behind the development of osteopenia. As mentioned, people with hypothyroidism may have this issue show up. Due to the loss of estrogen, it is relatively common in post-menopausal females. Certain lifestyle factors can also worsen the condition.
Avatar n tn // In all seriousness, lifestyle things are supposed to really help. Exercise regularly, cut back on salt and caffeine, eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D (since you put this on the vitamin D forum, you probably know that), do you like sardines? Eat sardines (nope, not me) and salmon. Give up smoking and drinking. Then supplements. Calcium and Vitamin D are important. Do you take this?
Avatar m tn i had a nissen fundaplacation surgery one in 2006 another in 2011 what exercise for my stomach should i not do
Avatar f tn As stated in the above post, do be sure and check with your doctor before beginning ANY type exercise program.
Monkey Absolutely! Any exercise where your heart rate rises over 100 will be beneficial. Try to keep you heart rate elevated for at least 30 minutes 3-5 times peer week. Please consult your physician if you have any chronic medical problems. You will find that by dropping your calories to under 1800 calories per day you will be more successful at your weight loss. For most people they need to walk 35 miles to lose 1 lb of fat--possibly shorter for bike riding but not by much.

203342 tn?1328737207 Typing for a long time,that is if you have been typing for a number of years, can cause pain and stiffness to appear at any time. It can also be due to osteoporosis. Hypothyroidism too can cause joint pains. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn (I eat between 1600-2100 calories, depending on the activities of the day.) So for about a month now, my average exercise week consists of 1.5-2 hours of intense exercise (things like spin and pump classes) about 6 days a week. Is this a big problem, or am I ok doing this? I don't want to hurt myself, but I don't know what else to do... I feel guilty ever missing a good hard workout.
1436330 tn?1284666036 Hello, about one year ago I to did the iop. It was a great program the only bad thing for me was when I heard some of the stories I thought to myself "well I'm not that bad" although I didn't use while I was there 8 am to 5pm. When I got in the car I took one half of a hydrocodone when Before I was takin 3/4 a day, so I made it thu the program but a few months later I was up to 6 a day! Now a year later I hate it that I didn't try harder!
Avatar m tn Now, about 3 weeks into my new exercise program, I am starting to get palpitations during the day, while sitting at my computer. I also sometimes feel them when I'm starting a walk, however, it seems that once I warm up a bit, I don't feel them anymore. It actually seems like the only time lately I'm not feeling occasional palpitations is when I'm in the middle of a walk.
655875 tn?1295695107 I was wondering about the 10,000 steps exercise program, but I'm a little confused. I was watching Dr. Oz(however, I'm not a fan) talk to this lady aout the 10,000 steps program. He stated that the 10,000 steps needed to take place at least twice a week in the same day. This sounds interesting to me, but I physically can not take the 10,000 steps without going into unbearable pain if it is done all at once.
Avatar m tn You are probably sitting too much and not getting adequate exercise. You need to start a walking program and consider yoga. Even if you don't have Celiac, eat a diet rich in vegetables, lean meat, and fruit. Decrease carb intake by avoiding processed foods. Some people report a lot of help from an alkaline diet. You can read about it on line.
