Abaloparatide Thymos 0steoporosis medication is administered by injection.
Unlike injections for diabetes you do not give yourself the Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication injection. You need to make an appointment with your doctor so as to get your injection at the doctor's office.
This Osteoporosis medication is made from the ovine thymus (thymus of cows). It can be prescribed for a number of medical conditions besides Osteoporosis, for example recurrent respiratory infections, colds, flu, H1N1 “swine” flu, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), mononucleosis, herpes and shingles, sinusitis, AIDS/HIV. In additions Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication is used for the treatment of asthma, hay fever, food allergies, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication has also been used to maintain white cell production in cancer patients who are being treated with radiation or chemotherapy. Finally, it is sometimes used to prevent effects of aging. Yes, there are many health conditions that are treated with Abaloparatide Thymus Osteoporosis medication. So if you have one of these conditions you might want to ask your health care provider if Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication might be used since it may also help with your bone density. Nothing like asking.
Your thymus gland plays an important part in our over all health. Anything strengthening your Thymus is bound to have a number of positive effects on your health....including building stronger bones.

In clinical trials Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication was shown to reduce fracture risk by increasing bone mass. This drug not only increased bone density but it also improved bone quality. Unlike some other drugs (eg. Bisphosphonates ) that increase bone density by preventing the reduction of 'old bone' and so can leave us with denser but weaker bones, Abaloparatide Thymus Osteoporosis medication actually improves bone quality in additions to making your bone denser.... so with Ablaoparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication you are less likely to have a bone fracture.
Images of bones of various bone density:
Notice the spaces in the Osteopenic and Osteoporosic bone. It is those spaces that make your bones more likely to fracture if sudden stress is put on them.
Most Osteoporosis prescription drugs increase bone density by preventing the body from discarding 'old bone'. As a result these drugs increase bone mass/density but they do not increase bone quality. In fact, the bones of persons using these drugs often become denser but at the same time they become weaker and subject to fracture because the bone is of such poor quality. Those using these types of drugs have thicker bones but these thicker bones are made up of bone that the body would normally discard because it has become 'old and weak'.
This problem of denser but weaker bone is a common effect of taking bisphosphonate prescription drugs. While it is true that many of the bisphosphonates, such as Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva increase bone density but the fact is that this increased density comes from the retention of 'old bone' so a person taking bisphosphonates usually have denser bones that are increasingly made up of poor quality bone. Because of this poor quality bone, bones can fracture easily or even crumble despite taking Osteoporosis medication.
Also, conditions such as Osteronecrosis of the jaw (dead jaw) have developed in some patients taking bisphosphonates. And research has found a danger from poor quality bone increases the longer a person takes the bisphosphonate drug. (Many physicians now limit the time a patient is prescribed any bisphosphonate drug.)
In other words, if a person uses bisphosphonate drugs for a long period of time that person may develop increased bone density but the quality of the bone is not good so fractures follow...... the new, weaker bone can not sustain significant stress.
Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication works in a different fashion from bisphosphonates. As a result it does not appear to increase the likelihood of fractures even when used for long periods of time. This is good news for anyone concerned about fractures as a result of developing Osteopenia or Osteoporosis ( excessive bone loss).
Practical action. If you are taking a prescription drug for Osteoporosis, you might want to speak with your health care provider about the drug's long term side effects. Because some drugs are fairly new to the market, your health care provider may need some time to read the research studies before answering your questions - especially if your prescription drug is quite new and there are no or few studies of it long term effects. Always remember that drugs can have some unintended consequences! Find out what they are. (You can also find this information online.)
Also remember that Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication is made from animal tissue, not just chemicals.
Some may be concerned that if the animals involved had other issues or illness, those could be passed on to those taking the prescription. Please, be sure to discuss any and ALL your concerns about Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication with your medical provider before you start taking the drug
Abaloparatide Thymos Osteoporosis medication is manufactured by Radius Health. It is only approved for women with severe Osteoporosis - those who have already suffered a fracture. (I am not sure why this restriction was put in place. I assume because of potential side effects ) It is administered once daily by a subcutaneous (just below the skin) injection into the periumbilical region (the part of the stomach right around the belly button). That is it...an injection; no pills to swallow.
