Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
Does this drug cause hair loss? I have many other symptoms from it, but this one would be intolerable. Not sure if it is coming from Forteo but other woman have reported it has.
From this study (6 months ago):
On Forteo for one year. Dexa showed loss of 6.5% on left hip and loss of 3.5%in spine. Biggest decrease since taking fosamax/Boniva in the past and since a 2 year break from all prescription bone drugs. Reason? Take calc and d3, excercise/weights, etc. daily.
