Antoinette~you need to get to a retina specialist immediately. That tear is nothing for them to fix and even if your retina starts to fall down, they stitch it back up; It's just amazing what these docs can do. Please go ASAP -- like an emergency. The tear can cause a small hole in the retina which means you have zero vision in that tear. Get it fixed. A Dr. that does cataracts and general eye surgery cannot help you. You have to have a retina specialist. The worst that happens to you is you have to sleep on your back for a few weeks as they don't want the head moving around when one is sound asleep. Medicare pays for it so no worry there.

Thanks Jan, My neighbor bought me some of the chicken broth at wholefoods, the pacific brand I think when I had a bad cold 3-4 months ago and I also practically gagged on it, lol. But now I bought some after getting out of the hospital thinking it would give me protein with almost no carbs and stop my blood sugar going up, I need to eat protein every 4-5 hours. But the plain chicken broth has only 1g protein. So then I saw the bone broth has 9g protein which is great. I thought that tasted better than the chicken broth.

I don't know if it is because eating solid food makes me feel sick now and this is very mild and easy to digest. The dietician at the hospital said to try and make my own because it can be very healing. You just take the chicken bones and I guess the left over skin and meat and put it in a crock pot. I don't feel well enough to do it right now and it's just easier to have it ready made.

But I will try it eventually. I put lots of sea salt in mine too which makes it taste better. My kittycat loves it too :-) She came to eat the last drop out of my bowl.

The brands I bought are: pacific organic chicken and organic bone broth and imagine organic chicken broth. The Imagine brand chicken broth tastes better because it has carrots in it with two carbs. I also got the pacific vegetable broth but I haven't tried that one yet, it has 2g carbs. I guess the bone broth has more protein because it has bones in it? I had some earlier when my blood sugar spiked and I had to do a big correction but couldn't eat also but had to eat something. This time I added the imagine chicken broth to the bone broth and Real Salt brand sea salt and it was delicious. I'm going to try adding some vegetable broth to the bone broth next time.

Be aware ladies that most salts have sugar/dextrose added into them as well as another additive calcium silicate that stops caking. I bought what I thought was a good sea salt at WF made by Heins I think and it has these added in, for some reason I didn't read the ingredients which I nearly always do. So I've switched to the Real Salt brand sea salt which comes in a shaker. I don't want sugar and that additive in my salt. I usually get the iodized salt but this one doesn't have it I think. Some of the other sea salts have the natural minerals but I'm not sure if they have iodine.

Kudos to you for drinking bone broth- I bought several boxes of Pacific brand bone broth... I gagged with every sip- I drink them all but haven't bought anymore. Do you make your own? Or do you have another brand you like? I need a more tasty version!

So true, you can't believe what they sneak wheat into, soups, sauces, even ice cream! ben and jerry's regular and new vegan almond milk ice cream has wheat flour in it! It's nutso. A lot of people who do better with gluten free also don't do well with dairy though. I sometimes have trouble with it but I can usually eat cheese and yogurt. Although I had cut yogurt out for a long time too, but added it back in because there is nothing else soft to eat that has some carbs and protein that I can eat right now. I had some in the hospital too and it didn't seem to spike me there, before it was spiking blood sugar too much.

Thanks Pood, I posted a long reply but it's not showing up yet, it had to be reviewed.. I think you forgot that I didn't take prolia fortunately. This is all from my other health issues which aren't going anywhere unfortunately. I'll post more later if the other reply doesn't show up. The recent diet is due to a stomach bug or something that probably caused high blood sugar and ketones and landed me in the hospital. I'm not sure what is going on really, I seemed to be getting better and then the night before last I got worse again, hence the diet. I eat gluten free now since type 1 diagnosis, but I accidentally ate a tiny bit when I was in the hospital.

Pops, I think you forgot that I never took prolia thank god. Someone at my doctors office tried to get me to take it but once I researched chef it and found this site I had decided not to. I'm not taking anything for the osteoporosis now. I haven't taken anything yet.

What's going on now is my type-1 diabetes, Hashimotos, IBS, hyperparathyroidism and who knows what else. Supposedly a virus & dehydration put me in the hospital with high Bg and high ketones. I'm still sick and I came back worse this weekend. My Bg is crashing nearly any time I eat so I can only eat small meals with no more than 10-20g carbs, that was happening before the stomach virus. My eosinophil count is very high so it could've an infection or a parasite maybe. I do wonder if something is going on with my adrenal glands too.

I have thought for a while I have celiac or wheat sensitivity and after the type-1 diagnosis I went gluten free. My Kat test was negative but I wasn't eating gluten for 4 months then so it could be wrong. There's a new test in Australia for which you don't have to eat gluten- I hope it comes to the U.S. Soon.

I was exposed to gluten when I was in the hospital by accident with some bread crumbs on flounder. My stomach/bowels got worse again after.

I'm having some scary dizzy spells too. I hope I feel better soon too. Unfortunately these diseases aren't going anywhere. I ruin if I'd have taken prolia it would've killed me for sure. My osteoporosis developed between 2009-12 prolly. When I went into early meno. Way too fast. And I was on hrt for 1.5 years of that time. It may be from primary hyperparathyroidism because in excreting high levels calcium in urine.

I am due for my third shot of poison in Oct. I will NOT take it. I requested a form from the FDA to report the drug name and all side effects. No I am seeing a thoracic surgeon because I have a growth on my thoracic bone. I had one biopsy done in which the result was not difiinitive. Now I have to have a PET scan done. I'm so sick of all the diagnostics I've had done and the radiation I've been exposed to. I have been in the beginning stages of cataracts for the past six years. I see my eye Dr in Oct. I may go earlier because my left eye has been tearing a lot. I do not know if this poison caused all of the above. But one thing I'm going to do is post this on FB to all of my friends and have them forward and so on down the line.

Yutigirl~have your Doctors done blood tests on you to check your immunoglobulins? It reads to me that your A is very low and a change in your diet would fix it. It's an autoimmune disease caused by Prolia. I had it and you are writing a lot of what I went through. You could check it out for yourself by not even going to a Dr. Pig out on gluten (foods that contain a lot of wheat) like maybe Macaroni and cheese and some cookies. If it makes you worse you will know. Then back off and eat no gluten -- none at all. You can have oatmeal if you are not terribly sensitive to it but stay away from anything that has wheat, rye, barley in it and see if your diarrhea stops. Eat fresh meats, veggies and fruits as long as the kitchen puts in no wheat. You can have corn and rice. They do not affect it at all. Let's see if that doesn't fix your diarrhea problem. I really believe it will. You also have to be very careful about canned soups too as they often sneak wheat into them. How about a nice piece of meat, baked potato, salad and fruit for dessert. For breakfast it's bacon or sausage and eggs. No toast and a nice glass of OJ. Lunch could be a large salad with chicken in it, 1/2 of a hard boiled egg, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and other fresh veggies. For dessert would be fresh fruit as in watermelon, grapes, cantaloupe, banana or whatever you like. This should straighten our your gut in one day just by deleting gluten. You can also have milk, yogurt, jello, ice cream (depending on kind as Cookie Dough as gluten in it) so stay with the normal vanilla, chocolate, sherbets, strawberry, cherry, etc. Hidden Valley Ranch dressing has no gluten in it so you are safe there. Do this and get back with me please. Be well~Pood

Skittle~Please take good care of yourself and GET WELL NOW!! It's none of my business but is the restricted diet due to any problems you had with Prolia or are they a separate issue. God Bless You and will keep you in my prayers~Pood

Marti~I believe your vision problems are probably due to cataracts. Prolia causes them. I had mine removed as soon as I hit the 6th month mark -- actually a couple of days before. Have you been to an optometrist to confirm any damage to your eyes from Prolia? If not, GO!! Muscle pain is Prolia wanting more calcium. The only way to counteract that is with a minimum of 500 mg Magnesium every night when you go to bed. Sometimes I may take one (250mg) in the day time if I start to feel any cramping. This is a year and a few months after only one injection of this poison. Just because the Prolia goes 'poof' does not mean in the least that it's nasty side effects leave with it. Some do and some don't. Be well~Pood

I too am having vision problems along with muscle & joint pain & it' been 9 months since my last injection. This stuff is like poison to me. It should be removed from the market, I agree.

Thanks Jan, this is pretty rough... I just hope I normalize a bit soon and I can go back to regular foods and eat more. So far as of today I'm on yogurt/jello/hardboiled eggs/bone broth/bananas until further notice ;-) ((((hugs)))))

Hi Skitty- sounds like you are going through a rough time... Hospitals are no fun, glad you are home- that's a good thing! Be gentle with yourself. Managing a diabetic diet is never easy and it's worse when you can't eat... Sending you positive thoughts! Hugs...

Thanks Pood, I will let you know if I go with a dog. I have been ill I was in the hospital with a diabetic emergency and I'm still not well. I'm having a hard time eating and managing my blood sugar etc. I'm eating soft and liquid foods only for now. I don't think I'll be able to travel now for a while and their have been a few other disasters. I know missing my baby both isn't helping. But I still don't feel ready yet to take on another while in sick. I hope you and everyone are ok or doing better at least or at least not worse. I'll post more later.((((Hugs))))

I had no reaction to the first two Prolia injections. The third,which I received on Tuesday, resulted in terrible constipation. A laxative relieved that, but I now have dreadful diarrhea. I had to sit up in the bathroom for 5 hours, the other night. I was so tired! The diarrhea stopped, then returned in just over 24 hours. I am 81 and dread thinking the next six precious months of life are going to be ruined by diarrhea.

My caregivers had never experienced anyone who had side effects. I was told to take it after a fall broke my pelvis in two places and my spine in two places. My bones are "turning to dust." I reacted to Fosamax and Miacalcin, and 6 months of daily Forteo injections resulted in decreased bone mass. I now use a walker. I guess this is the end of livable life for me.

Skittle~I know a breeder of excellent Poms when you get in the mood and health to add a new one. They have fantastic temperaments and do not go over 4 pounds in weight when full grown. My friend got one and named her 'Flirt'. I thought my Pood would be terribly jealous but she enjoyed having the little Pom here and she was like a little playmate. She does not over-breed her dogs so there is a good lag time between litters. When you feel better, let me know and I'll try to arrange one for you. They are not cheap in the least but the best never is. Be well my friend~Pood

Hi Trish~and welcome. You are not the first here to have a broken femur from Prolia. Look in the back pages at messages from Canadian. She had one injection of Prolia and hers broke for absolutely no reason at all other than Prolia. The Docs tried to give her a hard time but finally admitted it was the Prolia that caused her break. It did heal well so I expect yours will too. I'm just so sorry you had to be another of us, the Prolia guinea pigs. I sincerely hope that you will stop all Prolia as of now. Be well~Pood

Thank you for sharing your story. I Am so Sorry about what you have been through... The road to recovery from the side effects of Prolia is a long one. Recovery is also so very different yet similar to each of us. It is so important for all of us to support and share with each other...
