Avatar f tn Did anyone who finished tx find the meds aggravated their osteoporosis? or am I just getting old? I just had a Dexa bone density test and I have it on one side of my neck. Anyone know how to build back bone? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I am a 37yo male with asthma, osteoporosis in spine and hips, chronic medial meniscal tears in both knees. I'm trying to lose weight, any suggestions for an exercise program to help?
Avatar f tn Multiple studies have shown that a change is diet will produce two to three times more weight loss than does an exercise program. And if you curb your sugars and refined carbohydrates, your weight loss will be the most significant, even without the exercise. If you are overweight, it might be better to not exercise. Other than walking or swimming, exercise such as jogging can be doing more harm than good.
Avatar n tn So the advice on your other forum agrees with Dan's post (if you get around all the other stuff he said, which doesn't have a heck of a lot to do with menopause or osteoporosis risk). Osteoporosis risk factors, menopausal treatment and contraindicated medications, etc.--I would consult with a physician on this.
Avatar f tn The first thing to do is figure out how many calories you need at minimum, with no exertion. Plan out your diet so that your intake stays around that amount. Next, you should figure out when you're feeling most energetic. If you're like me, that's around 8:00 pm. Then it's just a matter of what you want to spend your energy on - cardio or weight lifting. They say now that you can spend the same amount of time weight lifting as with cardio, and you'll get the same health benefits.
469720 tn?1388149949 Exercise may reduce the risk of heart disease and breast and colon cancers. Though the evidence is mixed, exercise may also provide benefits for people with osteoporosis. Physical activity alone will not lead to sustained weight loss or reduce blood pressure or cholesterol. Exercise has long been touted as the panacea for everything that ails you. For better health, simply walk for 20 or 30 minutes a day, boosters say — and you don’t even have to do it all at once.
700223 tn?1318169294 today, 10 million individuals are estimated to already have the disease and almost 34 million more are estimated to have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk for osteoporosis. While osteoporosis is often thought of as an older person's disease, it can strike at any age. Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. If not prevented or if left untreated, osteoporosis can progress painlessly until a bone breaks.
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 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 n tn The only thing that kept me going prior to tx was faithful dedication to an exercise program, which became impossible on Interferon and ribavirin. As a matter of fact, although I only treated for 3 months, I lost 14 pounds, 6 of them muscle. I had spent most of those 3 months in bed. As soon as I could after finishing (had to stop early, but just got word of SVR), I resumed going to the gym. I was a flabby weakling and feeling quite a lot of pain.
Avatar m tn You have had an upper GI, but you could still get tested with blood tests for Celiac disease. Poor absorption can result from Celiac, and can cause osteoporosis and bone and joint pain and many other problems. 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.
Avatar f tn The pharmacologic approach to osteoporosis should be supplemented by regular weight-bearing exercise, including walking and you are definitely not too old to engage in a regular exercise program. If your doctor doesn’t deem the osteoporosis worthy of treatment, you should consult with another doctor. By taking this action, you may well be able to spare yourself the grief and suffering of a fractured hip, in the years to come.
Avatar n tn If it caused you problems before there is reason to believe it may again. Believe it or not, a good exercise program and nutrition can help people with the fatigue.
Avatar m tn I haven't been here for a while. Things haven't been too good lately as i'm still w/d from my large amount of medication for back pain. I take 360mg morphine s/r pills, ( reduced by 1 x 60mg pill per day ), 8 x dihydrocodeine, 4 x zydol ( tramadol ), 4 x baclofen, 2 x diclofenic, 100ml oramorph solution, 1 x pantoprazole & 2 x adcal for osteoporosis. Its been 10 days of sweats, stomach pain, sick feeling, headaches etc but most of all is my bad mood towards my wife & kids.

Avatar f tn His latest study, published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, names this kids' favorite an optimal post-exercise recovery aid. Take a look at chocolate milk's ingredient list. For a high-endurance athlete, Stager's team sees it as a catch-all workout recovery drink. Compared to plain milk, water, or most sports drinks, it has double the carbohydrate and protein content, perfect for replenishing tired muscles.
Avatar f tn I took tai chi (taiji) at our high school district's continuing education program for three years. It's a gentle exercise, you don't need to be real fit, but it's good for flexibility, balance, and strengthening muscles. It's weight-bearing exercise, which is good for fighting off osteoporosis. It helped my knees, although I couldn't always tell that on the way home from the class!
Avatar n tn I've had osteopenia for a lot of years (well before hypothyroidism) and have actually rebuilt bone, with a program of calcium, vitamin D and exercise, in spite of being on both T4 and T3 thyroid hormones. I take my T4 and 1 T3 tablet first thing in the morning and 1 T3 tablet with lunch... I need the medication and it's become a habit that I don't forget. Your labs were within the normal ranges (look very good, by the way) because of the medication.
Avatar n tn An exercise professional is your best choice for guidance to design a safe, effective program just for your needs. How long does it take to see results from these changes? Many people who change their diets see results right away. The difference in body pain levels can be noticed in a matter of days. Reducing inflammation by stopping the triggers that sweets and starches create can be felt very quickly.
Avatar f tn I wouldn't advise getting desperate and going on any fad diets or take diet pills either - This can be more harmful than good - and it may take you longer if you take these things and will most definately interfer with your medications to balance you out. Find an exercise program you ENJOY and will committ to daily and just do that until your thyroid starts to behave.
1755089 tn?1376057155 I keep track of everything I eat and all the deliberate exercise time on an iPhone app and am obviously losing weight at exactly the expected pace (the program calculates net calories from eaten vs expended on exercise). I count mine as walking from very slow to moderate depending on how fast.
12832842 tn?1448732401 I don't see much difference now, and my only exercise is walking my dog. I know that in general a reasonable amount of exercise is very healthful, MS or not. It's very good for joints, muscles, heart, etc. But what if one is just too pooped to pop, to use an ancient expression? That describes me to a T, in more ways than one, as I'm also pretty ancient.. I get worn out every day just dealing with life, so this is just an academic question for me now, maybe permanently.
Avatar n tn They can design appropriate prevention or recovery exercise programs that will meet your specific needs and help you heal faster. Improve your balance and prevent falls When you start your physical therapy, often therapists screen you for fall risk. If you’re at high risk for falls, they will provide exercises that mimic real-life situations. These professionals come up with exercises to improve coordination and total muscle strength to help you eventually attain target objectives.

Avatar f tn I'm there with you, I want so badly to lose some weight, but haven't figured out how to manage it. Between the fatigue and my legs and feet not wanting to work I haven't found a way to exercise. I know without the exercise it will be hard to lose much weight. Hopefully someone will jump in here and give us some good ideas!!
Avatar f tn In my case, I haven't really found the right doctor but I've researched a lot of things and I handle my own supplements, diet, exercise etc and if the doctor don't like it, s/he can get with the program and take care of business.
5820022 tn?1378515955 But it is still important. Can anyone recommend a thyroid specific diet or exercise program that will help me to keep m weight down after the treatment and lose it when I'm balanced out? After reading all these forums I could really use a success story. I already am very uncomfortable with the weight I have gained and I realize there might be more. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my long, dry post. I would greatly appreciate any advice you have to offer.
