28 Years Old....Tscore of -2.5

Zscore of -2.4. I had a bone density test done at a local health fair today and the lady that did it was very adimant about me going to the doctor. I had one done about 2-3 years ago and it was pretty much the same, just a little higher. I think it may have been -2.2. Would just like to hear some opinions.....Thanks!

Re: 28 Years Old....Tscore of -2.5

Hi,
I was wondering if you have a T score or a Z score of -2.5 because mostly the T scores are used to compare bone density. Was the bone density tested in your ankle or your arm? That's how mine was done at a health fair and was fairly accurate to the test results from a regular DEXA scan that measures the hip and spine.

It might be a good idea to see your doctor to find out a reason for a negative bone density. Since you know about this and are young you have time to work on increasing your bone density. It's alot easier to prevent further loss than to increase bone density so I'd recommend taking the test results to your family doctor and getting it checked out. You don't want to let this get out of control.
