Is There Any Natural Alternatives to Pamidronate?

07/05/2002

Question:

I am receiving a drug called Pamidronate/aridea. I was wondering if there isn`t something natural, i.e. diet, that would help accomplish the same solution. Thank you.

Answer:

Pamidronate is a drug given to patients whose calcium levels are too high for a variety of reasons. There are no `natural products` that have been shown to effectively decrease calcium levels.
