Severe bone thinning shows up in an X-rays but my calcium level is high in my blood tests. Had my parathyroid system looked at and it was fine.
Did some research and found out that at least one of the medications I use, BUDESON/FORMOT (SYMBICORT) is the most likely cause of this issue.
Anyone of you in the same situation? What, if any changes were made to your list of meds used to fight this COPD?

Are you taking supplements? Should be. I take calcium, D3, fosamax. Call your doc and consult with them.
