Re: Question About DEXA Results

HI Stavia, those are great improvements and you should be very happy with them, but i do have a few questions. Did you have the DEXA on the same machine as last time done by the same tech? Different machines can give different results and even slight differences in how the tech has you postioned can affect the scores. You said switching to calcium citrate and adding more D are the only things you changed, but have you also increased your exercise, added new things to your fitness routine or made small diet changes that you aren't taking into consideration? Small changes can add up to big gains. What did your doctor have to say about your gains? Did he seem surprised? Did you stop taking the calcium for a day or two before the scan? Sorry for all the questions, take care...phyllis
