Hi and welcome to the board, Jenny gave you good advice. You're pretty young to have osteopenia, but still young enough to make lifestyle changes that will help improve the density. When you see your dr.( yes, you should find out whats going on) to get the DEXA also have him check to make sure there aren't secondary causes, that could be affecting your bone density. Labs can check your D levels, thyroid, parathyroid and whatever else he may want to check. Take the print out from the heel test with you so he can see what has already been said.
When the DEXA and labs come back sit down and discuss al the results with the dr. and see what his recommendations are. Unless the DEXA comes back with surprises you may be able to improve your denstiy with supplements, exercise and a good diet. If one of the osteo drugs are suggested its up to you to educate yourself and decide whats best for you. I'm also going to suggest you read the book[I] The Myth of Osteoporosis[ I] by Gillian Sanson. It is loaded with good info and gives a different POV than other books give on osteo. take care...phyllis
