Cortisone linked to osteoporosis

Cortisone linked to osteoporosis
Q: What effect do cortisone shots have on the body? To keep playing tennis,Isabel Marant Bekett, I have received shots in my hip, knees and shoulders during the past few years. I have read that oral prednisone can lead to osteoporosis. What about shots?
A: Diminished bone density and osteoporosis are well-known complications of oral prednisone treatment. A new study of injected corticosteroids found that a single shot into the spine for back pain reduced bone-mineral density of the hip (Spine, Dec. 1, 2012). Whether administered by injection,Isabel Marant Poppy, in pills or through an inhaler, steroids weaken bones.
Extra vitamin D, calcium, regular weight-bearing exercise and osteoporosis medications may be helpful to prevent fractures.
Q: When the recall of Ranbaxy atorvastatin was announced because of glass particles in the pills, I had 30 left of a 90-day supply. The pharmacist said he had no way of tracing the lot number of my prescription. He offered to replace the pills with pills from another supplier of atorvastatin.
I don't understand how manufacturers can track lot numbers of canned goods or cereal, yet consumers have no way of knowing if they have taken pills from recalled lot numbers.
A: You have identified a weak link in the prescription-drug supply chain. Many states do not require pharmacists to note the lot number on dispensed medication or even keep a record of the original source.
Q: Using soap for muscle cramps was the stupidest idea I'd heard in a long while. I tried drinking tonic water for the quinine, eating lots of bananas for the extra potassium and anything else I had heard about, but nothing worked.
I was ready for stupid ideas. I cut a small soap chip to put in each sock at night. So far,Isabel Marant Talons, the results have been magical.
