    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Well, this is interesting - Researchers in Denmark implanted osteoporosis patients with microchips to deliver the bone building medication Forteo.

    Drug Delivery Microchip Could Replace Daily Injections

    How do you feel about this? Would you implant a microchip in your body to deliver the daily meds that you need?

    I think it is a very good idea.

    If one should decide for some or other reason to stop the medication (e.g. because of side effects) I suppose you can always have it removed.

    As long as the programmers don't make a mistake somewhere (human error) and you end up taking the wrong dosage!
