Cortisone linked to osteoporosis

Cortisone linked to osteoporosis
Q: What effect do cortisone shots have on the body? To keep playing tennis, 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,Isabel Marant Nouveau 2013, 2012). Whether administered by injection, in pills or through an inhaler, steroids weaken bones.
Extra vitamin D, calcium,Isabel Marant Bekett, 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 france, the results have been magical.
