My dr has started me on Boniva which I intend to take on the first of the month. I'm also on a high calcium diet with 1500mg calcium a day. I'm very active I love running, cycling, weight lifting, and hiking. I'm also a full time working single mother, and a student. I've been advised to becareful of falls and to lower my impact on the weights for fear of fractures.

Luckily I had a good dr that insisted on this scan because I'd hate to think of how I would have found out other wise probably through a broken bone.
