I read this article. Found the information relevant to our practice. As a staff nurse I given a fair amount of ADT injections to our prostate cancer patient. Spoke with one of our lead MD's who does a lot of CA Tx. We discussed bone loss and treatment, he asked me to encourage the pt's to use calcium and vitamin D as the providers recommend. This is a real issue with this treatment mostly in the older population that is a bone loss, fall rise group.
