Re: Please help! How bad is this T Score?

Hi,
Sorry to hear your mom has osteoporosis. I'd say she has severe osteoporosis. My T scores were in the -3's although some spine levels are or were near -4.

If she's not eating calcium rich foods or taking calcium supplements that may be something to try, if her doctor agrees. If she can take walks if her pain isn't too bad that will help also. If her doctor can figure out why she has this then that may help decide what treatment would be effective for her.

Let us know how it's going for her.
