I finally did the tests I have been putting off. One was the Pyrilinks-D test which tells you if you're loosing too much calcium, and the other was the hormone profile, both from Aeron Life Cycles.
I have osteoporosis of the spine and osteopenia of the hip. I've had some improvement using Advacal since my last bone scan, especially in the hip, which used to be classified osteoporosis. Since then I have added strontium. It's been a year and a half so I need to make an appointment to see if it's working. I don't want to take Fosamax.
My last Pyrilinks test was out of range and had me concerned but this one came back 6.00 which is O.K.
The hormones were about what I expected. Estrogen was low of course and progesterone was about right (Pro-Gest). Cortisol, DHEA and testosterone were good. The nice thing about Aeron is they will send you the results so you can see before you go to the doctor.
I have been on the Maca for a few weeks and it seems to be helping the sex drive a little. I'm going to up it a little for a few weeks and see what happens. Progress!
