Osteoporosis
« on: June 07, 2008, 09:21:41 AM »
I do not remember in which posts I found questions on osteoporosis, so I am posting this here.

Quote from Gene Reviews :
Osteoporosis.  Osteoporosis is a common complication in adults with thalassemia major and intermedia [Voskaridou & Terpos 2004]. Its origin is multifactorial, making it difficult to manage. Treatment involves appropriate hormonal replacement, an effective regimen of transfusion and iron chelation, calcium and vitamin D administration, and regular physical activity. Specific treatment with bisphosphonates has been attempted with promising results in several studies and confirmed in a randomized trial [Voskaridou et al 2006].

Fosamax use linked to atrial fibrillation in women
Published: Monday, 28-Apr-2008


Women who have used Fosamax are nearly twice as likely to develop the most common kind of chronically irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) than are those who have never used it, according to research from Group Health and the University of Washington published in the April 28 Archives of Internal Medicine.

Sometimes , God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes , He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes , He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes , He sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes , He sends us illness so we can take better care of our selves.
Sometimes , He takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything we have.

I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A NOTE ON THIS...BEING IN THE PHARMACY INDUSTRY FOR MANY YEARS NOW!!!! I HAVENT HEARD ANY SUCH CROCK ABOUT FOSAMAX CAUSING ATRIAL FIBRILLATION IN WOMEN..

AT MY WORK WE GET UPDATED NEARLY EVERY DAY ON WHAT DRUGS ARE AVAILABLE AND WHAT DRUGS ARE SAFE TO TAKE OR NOT....

SO I WOULD RECOMMEND TO CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL GP IF THEY ARE UPDATED ON THEIR INFORMATION...ON RECENT FINDINGS ABOUT GENERAL EVERYDAY DRUGS...



I HAVE BEEN ON BIOPHOSPHONATES AND I AM DOING REALLY WELL...I AM ON THE YEARLY ONE NOW AND MY BONE DENSITY HAS IMPROVED..

Umair,

Don't delete the post. The study you posted about is a valid study based on observation of over 700 women who used Fosamax. There was an 86% higher incidence of atrial fibrillation in this group.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Hi Andy :
Thanx for guiding me to not to delete the post.. i red the full article before placing that article's heading and link here ... but when i heard 1 or 2 reply abt that  is not valid in their cases .. i thought that it ( the article )  could   b related to the war of pharma companies .... then i thought to not to involve this site in this war of companies ( if it is ).... thats y i felt the need to ask abt the article ... thanx buddy for solving the issue for me ...
 
Best Regards
Take Care
