60mg 1-1ml prefilled syringe
Buy Prolia for patients that have osteoporosis. This medication, which has the generic name of denosumab, has the ability to increase bone mass in both men and women who suffer from osteoporosis.
Who benefits the most from Prolia
Although this medication can be prescribed for both male and female use, it is mostly beneficial for females in the postmenopausal age who have higher risk of bone fracture as a result of osteoporosis.
Ailments Treated with Prolia
This medicine helps in relieving symptoms in both women and men who have osteoporosis, and therefore have a higher risk of bone breaks and fractures. This risk is significantly higher in post-menopausal women, and it can also be used to treat men who suffer from prostate cancer and are receiving hormone ablation.
How does Prolia work?
Prolia contains the active ingredient named denosumab, which is a kind of monoclonal antibody. This kind of antibody, which is a type of protein, is developed to specifically seek out and attach to a specific antigen within the body, particularly RANKL, the one which is involved in osteoclast activation. These kinds of cells are the ones responsible for breaking down bone tissue, and because Prolia is able to attach to the antigen and block them, the formation and activity of osteoclasts is highly reduced, meaning lesser chance of bone loss, and it also maintains the strength of the bone, making fractures less likely.
This medication is introduced via injection under the skin in the upper thigh, upper arm, or stomach. A healthcare provider will be administering the injection, which will happen around once every 6 months on average. Extra vitamin D and calcium may also be recommended when being treated with Prolia, but the patients need to ensure only the recommended amount by the physician is consumed. Dental hygiene is especially important during this treatment, and the patient may need to undergo a dental exam before using the medication.
How long does Prolia last?
This will vary on a patient-to-patient basis. In some studies, people have been safely taking the medication for 8 years, and the doctor’s recommendation will dictate how long the treatment should be availed of.
