Reading Dexa Results

I posted previously about Troubled Dexa Results...In reading the sheet given to me by the Doctor, it also says: Total Tscore in the left hip is -1.6, but the left femoral neck is -2.7. Which score is more important??? I am freaking out here!

Re: Reading Dexa Results

You said your left hip is -1.6 and left fermoral neck is -2.7. -2.5 and worse is osteoporosis and -1.0 to -2.5 is low bone mass. It says your left hip if low bone mass and your left fermoral neck is -2.7 which is osteoporosis. At least that is what I was told as for as low bone mas and osteoporosis. I have osteoporosis so I am on Forteo.

Re: Reading Dexa Results

You have osteopenia. Total hip is used according to WHO.

Re: Reading Dexa Results

So the total hip score (-1.6) is more important than the femoral neck of the hip score (-2.7)? Then why does my report read "Osteoporosis of the hip?"

Re: Reading Dexa Results

The best way to find out is to ask your dr.

I suggest that you visit this site: http://courses.washington.edu/bonephys/opbmdtz.html

Also do a search for FRAX on this same site.

If you would like some thoughts on this, send your email address.
