Betty Rombough - West Caldwell, NJ
Hi, my name is Betty Rombough and I'm from New Jersey. I have had a long history of ulcerative colitis since 1979 and also years of steroid use to try to help it. But it wasn't until 2002, when a doctor told me that I needed a DEXA scan to check my bone density, because steroids take the calcium out of your bones. I did not know this.
I had my DEXA scan and I was just shocked. It was terrible. So I decided to do exercises, and I decided I would do what the doctor recommended. Though, in 2006, I decided I'm going to take calcium citrate every day, 2,500 milligrams for a year, and see if I can't get a better bone density exam. So after a year, 2007, it was still terrible, even worse than it was before.
So in 2007, I decided this is a turning point for me, I need something that is natural and I prayed, and I went on the internet, I found AlgaeCal. AlgaeCal's advertisement said, double your money back if you're not better in six months, that was good enough for me. So I started AlgaeCal from 2007 to 2008.
2008's DEXA scan was improvement in every single area. I was elated, that was a first improvement that I had had. So I continued it. And the next year, 2009, it was an improvement from 2008. And then the doctor said, you don't need to have a DEXA scan every year, you can have it every two years.
2011, I was improved, 2013, improved still. And then between 2013 and 2016, I had medical problems that caused my 2016 DEXA scan, two of the areas lost a little, but three of the areas still were improved.
So I went from -3.0, and -3.2 and -3.4 scores all the way to what they are today, and you can check that out, it is posted. So for me, AlgaeCal is a no brainer, and I'm thankful that I found it. Thank you.
