Jane’s Story

“Put simply, the Marodyne LiV device has given me back my life and restored my confidence.”

Jane’s Story

“I felt like I was walking around with a timebomb strapped to me, knowing that my bones could break at any time,”

Her diagnosis

Jane Ryan, 68, is the award-winning author of the ‘Missing Dad’ teen spy thriller series, short stories and dramas. Extremely active and fit, riding was her absolute passion and she also loved kayaking and dinghy sailing. So when her GP told her that at the age of 50 her muscles were stronger than her bones, that was a huge blow. But worse was to come: aged just 60, Jane tripped and fell while out walking and her left femur – the largest bone in the body – snapped like a matchstick. 

 

“I was devastated to be diagnosed with osteoporosis and from that moment I felt like I was walking around with a timebomb strapped to me knowing that my right femur could break at any time,” says Jane.

Refusing medication and dramatic lifestyle changes

“Every day I do something about making my bones stronger”

Jane’s GP told her to accept her condition, reassess her lifestyle and take medication to support her bones. “I wasn’t prepared to wrap myself in cotton wool and take pills,” says Jane. “I couldn’t bear the possible side effects of the drugs and decided instead to follow a bone-health diet and take up Pilates to strengthen my legs and back.”

Jane felt better and positive about doing something proactive to address the disease. She was feeling buoyant until a follow-up DEXA scan showed that her right femur was still riddled with osteoporosis.

Just as Jane was losing hope, she discovered Marodyne LiV. In fact, she was one of the first people in the UK to try it when she started using the device in 2015. “Every day I do something about making my bones stronger. This device has given me my life back and restored my confidence.”

Marodyne LiV provides a pre-emptive defence against osteoporosis

“My GP had never seen scans like this: the osteoporosis beast had been put into reverse gear!”

Three years after learning she had osteoporosis in her right femur, Jane had another DEXA scan that showed that her bone was no longer osteoporotic – just osteopenic.

 

While Jane had hoped that the rate of bone thinning could be slowed by Marodyne LiV, she hadn’t dared to hope that her right femur could get stronger again, “My GP had never seen scans like this: the osteoporosis beast had been put into reverse gear!”

 

Jane wants people to realise that osteoporosis doesn’t just affect the elderly and it can be present even if you’re outwardly fit and physically active. She believes that to avoid osteoporosis, a pre-emptive defence is needed. And to her mind Marodyne LiV is exactly that.

Menohealth

We are working together with Menohealth to create a society free from osteoporosis. Julie Robinson, founder of Menohealth, shares our ethos that prevention is better than ‘cure’ when managing menopause symptoms and actively encourages women to take control of their bodies at this time of their life.

“I’m reassured by the fact Marodyne LiV is clinically approved to prevent and combat osteoporosis and the science backing its effectiveness looks strong,” says Julie.  “As a 100% natural way to boost bone health, Marodyne LiV sits well alongside our stance here at Menohealth of taking a holistic approach to healthcare. I have no hesitation in recommending women look at using Marodyne LiV alongside making healthy diet and lifestyle choices during menopause.”
