osteoporosis & kidney problems
annmw67 posted:
my mother is 87 years old, one kidney, on dialysis, CHF, &, as of her last bone density test, osteoporosis (don't know her score). the doctor wanted her to take a Prolia shot, which she did yesterday. today she's complaining about not being able to keep anything down since early this morning. is there anything else she could take for her osteoporosis that is kidney friendly? she will not be taking this shot again.

Welcome Annmw67 and thanks for posting about your mother. Your questions are good ones, but can't be answered here.

Your mother's nephrologist (kidney expert) is the one who would know what a "kidney friendly" osteoporosis medication might be. Your mother's primary care doctor and nephrologist should be able to compare notes and come up with a recommendation based on your mom's health history and her most recent lab work.

Let us know how she's doing,
