My mother-in-law started Forteo injections about 2 months ago.
She is 87 years old and fell and broke her hip and required surgery so the Dr. recommended Forteo shots. She has allot of stomach problems in general, loose stools and allot of gas. Does anyone know if the Forteo could be causing the stomach problems ?

No, Forteo has no effect on the digestive system. For your mother, it's a smart medicine for her to be taking.
