Recalibration of machines

Well, I went for my scan this morning. Hope to improve my -1.6 T score from
2008 as I have been doing weight lifting since then. So the tech tells me that they recently had their machines recalibrated according to World Health Organization standards. As a result, they went back and changed some T scores and mine was one of them. It is now considered to have been -1.2 instead of -1.6! What the heck????? Their machines were off that much???
So I am barely over the threshold and they had tried to cram meds down me bacak then???? Yikes!

It will certainly be interesting to see if my score changes any. Am so glad I had already made the decision to not have any more of these scans after this one. I'll let y'all know in a few days what the results are.
