Can osteoporosis be reversed?
remind me if you have levels posted anywhere or have sent me results previously?intro: Vitamin D insufficiency is common, however within individuals, not all manifest the biochemical effects of PTH excess. This further extends to patients with established osteoporosis. The mechanism underlying the blunted PTH response is unclear but may be related to magnesium (Mg) deficiency.
methods: 30 patients (10 women in 3 groups) were evaluated prospectively measuring calcium, PTH, Mg retention (Mg loading test), dietary nutrient intake (calcium, vitamin D, Mg) and bone turnover markers (serum CTX & P1CP).
results: All subjects, within the low vitamin D and low PTH group following the magnesium loading test had evidence of Mg depletion ... Following oral supplementation bone turnover increased
conclusions: This study confirms that in patients with established osteoporosis, there is also a distinct group with a low vitamin D and a blunted PTH level and that Mg deficiency (as measured by the Mg loading test) is an important contributing factor.

I also take another supplement for bones that has:
Vit D 500 iu
Vit K 500 mcg
Beebenine HCI 90 mg
Reduced Iso-Alpha Acids Complex. 370 mg

Start eating the organic fruits and vegetables which are alkaline and you will start building calcium in your bones. Your body is smart and will keep you healthy if you give it what it needs. Stop putting acid in your body such as sugar, meat, drugs and process foods and you will start building your bones again. Stop believing your doctor and start doing what it takes to build your bones.

Since you are in the US (western New York), monthly cyanocobalamin (a.k.a. cyano B12) is used for office IM injections. Methylcobalamin is available through a compounding pharmacist and, according to the book Could It Be B12?, methyl is more effective than cyano. Perhaps there is some way your doctor could use the methyl form of B12. I think you might see a big difference.
