Here's another interesting article -

This site also carries another article on the green tea effect on OP.

Off to buy some prunes!

Thanks for that Eliza, I love prunes too and usually have 2 or 3 with my breakfast - not sure I could eat 10 but will try!!!  I also drink a cup of light green tea with lemon a day, perhaps I should drink more of that too!!

Interesting article, but unsure about whether prunes are a good thing! this is because prunes appear to behave like bisphosonates in preventing resorbtion (breaking down of old bone). And I thought the important thing was not to hinder resorbtion or the work of osteoblasts (which help build new bone).

So not sure about it. But an interesting article. Thank you for posting it.

Thanks for your take on that Sarah. It's good to have differing points of view - gives me something to think about - and I'm always learning! It's a minefield isn't it?

Minefield! You think you have found a 'cure' and then someone says 'ah but....' It sometimes get me so frazzled I do not know where to turn.

This forum is the only place that I go, as here you get lots of different views and no one is 'pushing' any one 'remedy'.

It's still bewildering though.

Especially as we can't have a scan every so often to see if what we are doing is working!

Seeing my OP specialist on 20th Oct for a discussion (and hopefully a decision!) on which annual infusion to have. Anyone got any questions they need asking?

diagnosed OP at 40, menopause at 42. Intolerant of AA and SR. Got along on Adcal D3, diet and exercise for last ten years. OP worsening. Fractured knee, fibula and shoulder this year. About to commence annual infusion.......

Sarah, I just read that article again because I have been eating prunes every day now for the past 2 months and
' according to Arjmandi, was due in part to the ability of dried plums to suppress the rate of bone resorption, or the breakdown of bone, which tends to exceed the rate of new bone growth as people age.'

Am I reading this correctly that prunes only suppress the
RATE
at which bone is reabsorbed in
OLDER
people - it does not say that it is hindering the osteoblasts from making new bone?


Regards
Sieglinde
