In clinical trials Ablaoparatide Thymus 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 that increase bone density by preventing the reduction of 'old bone' and thus leaving us with denser but weaker bones, Ablaoparatide Thymus actually improve bone quality in additions to making our bone denser.... so with Ablaoparatide Thymos Osteoporosis you are less likely to fracture a bone.

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 the bone.
Ablaoparatide Thymus treatment offers something new to persons who have significant bone loss. 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. They 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 result of denser but weaker bones is a common effect of bisphosphonate prescription drugs. While it is true that many of the bisphosphonates, such as Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva increase bone density but the increased density of bone comes from the retention of 'old bone' as so a person's bones are increasingly made up of poor quality bone. Because of this poor quality bone, a person's bones can fracture easily or even crumble. Conditions such as Osteronecrosis of the jaw (dead jaw) have developed in some patients taking bisphosphonates. And research has found that the danger increases the longer a person takes the bisphosphonate. 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) 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 as a result of 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.(Because some drugs are fairly new to the market, your health care provider may need some time to read the research studies o answering your questions especially if your prescription drug is quite new and there are not studies of it long term effects. Always remember that drugs can have some unintended consequences.
Also remember that this drug 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 concerns you might have about Abaloparatide (Thymos) with your medical provider before you start taking the drug
Abaloparatide Thymos 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.
