Can medicines used to strengthen bones lower kidney function? If so, which ones do and which ones do not?
I am a 64-year-old female taking anastrozole as a result of a double mastectomy for breast cancer. I have also had an ESWL to remove a kidney stone, and my GFR has been stable at around 50 for several years. I was also diagnosed with osteoporosis through a DEXA scan and am now faced with choosing a medicine to strengthen my bones.
I would like to select the medication that will best help my bones, while at the same time protecting my kidneys from damage. Please help. Thanks!
