I am being advised to take tablets or have an injection to improve bone density.  Does anyone have experience of taking this as I am concerned about the effect on my bladder.

Hello CaroleAnn

If it is a Calcium Magnesium , then I have read that may aid the bladder.

I googled and found this which may help, but would always recommend, you discuss any concerns with your Medical advisers.

https://www.livestrong.com/article/106023-calcium-interstitial-cystitis/

Calcium neutralizes acid when combined with meals.
    
Best for IC

“Calcium glycerolphoshate is a chemical substance that neutralizes the acid content of food. This essentially reduces acid secretion by the kidneys into the urine and reduces symptoms in many patients with IC.” says *** a board certified urologist in DeKalb, Illinois. Other calcium-based antacids that don't contain preservatives additives and artificial colors may help relieve IC symptoms.

Kind regards

Kate
