I was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis and have a compression frature at t-8. My rheumatologist recommended forteo and said it was the "best thing out there." He told me of the risk of it causing bone cancer and literally told me there was only one reported case in humans.i have been reading about all of these types of meds and none sound safe but i don't want to do nothing. I am 60 years old. My mom has severe osteoporosis and suffers horribly. Any advise is appreciated. Imvery confused as to what to do. I am a very actve person, i exercise every day, have for years and eat healthy. Obviously that didn't help.
