Will an Endocrinologists be able to help me with my

Customer Question

Will an Endocrinologists be able to help me with my situation:
Had stomach removed at the Mayo in Minn. Before this I threw up for 3 years about 3-5 times a day, very malnourished and lost an enormous amount of bone mass - I was 90 lbs by the time I got help and diagnosed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. To add to the high bone loss (osteo) I also have degenerate arthritis. My purpose for your possible help is that I was put on 2 bond loss meds and had very bad reactions to both. On infusion, the other pills. Since I have no stomach my primary said there is nothing else can be done for me in the way of bone loss and meds to help slow it down or maintain. I now have ezema as a result of the meds I was on. I break out on face, elbow, knees and head. I use cortizone cream and it helps some, but I really need help with these break outs and would love to find some thing to help with bone density situation. Would a Endocrinologist be able to help me with this? My primary recommended that this might be the path I need to go? Thank you, ***** *****

Since you are allergic to the medications (bisphosphonates), you should try teriparatide, denosumab, or raloxifen. You should see an endocrinologist. Kurt A. Kennel, M.D. is a specialist in endocrinology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
