My mother was on Forteo just a few years ago. She died suddenly within 3 weeks from acute leukemia. She had no health issues what so ever. I cant help but wonder if this drug caused her cancer.
I had been taking Forteo since 10/22/14. I get my blood calcium levels and vitamin levels checked every 3 mos. I have never been high in calcium or hypertensive.. Always low blood pressure.. They both went up last 2 months. I've stopped with 7 months to go.. It's too scary for me... I'm only 43 now ..I dont think it answered your question but it's input on the drug.
