Hi Brothers,
My uro has me on Prosteon Bone Supplement since I am also on Lupron.  The supplement, taken twice daily, has 1000 IU Vitamin D3, 50 mcg Vitamin K1, 500 mg Calcium, 100 mg Magnesium, 50 mg Strontium, and 1.5 mg Boron.  Anyone of you on that supplement?  Or any other supplements to counter adverse side effect of hormone therapy?  Thanks for your replies.

I just saw my internist today. He recommended 1000IU of vitamin D3 for bone strengthening for all of us old guys. I have also read good things about K1 in the news letters of pretty respectable hospitals. So over all, this seems scientifically sound.
Age at diagnosis 66, PSA 5.5
Biopsy 12/08 12 cores, 8 positive
Gleason 3+4=7
CAT scan, Bone scan 1/09 both negative.

Robotic surgery 03/03/09 Catheter Out 03/08/09
Pathology: Lymph nodes & Seminal vesicles negative
Margins positive, Capsular penetration extensive Gleason 4+3=7
6 weeks: 1 pad/day, 1 pad/night -- mostly dry at night.
10 weeks: no pad at night -- slight leakage day/1 pad.
3 mo. PSA 0.0 - now light pads
