I am a pituitary patient. I've been taking Hydrocortisone now for about six years. Back when the journey all began I had a DEXA scan and it showed that I had osteopoeneia in several spots. As as 41 female I was quite concerned about this. I just got the results of my last DEXA scan and I am good. My bone has filled in and it is no longer an issue. So I follow the, "only take what you need philosophy" my max is 15 mgs a day. I Also, take a calcium supplement at night. And then I am on growth hormone because I am deficient in that too.
This is more of a it gets better thing,
Thanks! Yes bones can improve. I was very glad to hear that myself.
Yes, I take Calcium citrate too, also at night to avoid interference with my two thyroid meds. I don't take D3 per se but I do take a multivitamin that has 400 IUs.
I probably get more sunshine than some, because of where I live so my D levels have been good, thankfully.
How's things rumpled? I see that you are busy as always with the forums.

So what we seal it up a third time, I may lose hearing in that ear and then wham it pops out again somewhere else. hmmph not on my watch. I need more of a plan than that thank you very much. xxHorsey
