bone up on supplements

We learned that prolonged use of steroids reduces bone density – not good news considering that the first (and sometimes only) course of treatment for DM & PM is usually high-dosage prednisone then a maintenance course of steroids.

While discussing this with fellow DM patient Laura Clark-Moore (check out her myositis blog Laura’s Mind Escape here) she told us about Bone-Up (by Jarrow).

Click here for the Jarrow Bone-Up webpage. We are asking Mo’s rheumy if he would recommend  using this product or similar – we’ll update this post when we hear back from his doc!

**As always, we urge you to check with your doctors before adding any type of supplement to make sure it won’t interfere with your course of treatment and medications.**
