Dexa Results

Just checking in to let you know that I had my dexa done and improved from 3.0 to 2.7 in spine in two years... using strontium and vit k and vitamins and doing some exercises a few times a week. Before the 3.0 score I was 3.2 and fractured since taking strontium i have not fractured.... whoo.. hoo

Re: Dexa Results

what great news!!! Did they give you the hip scores too? I bet since your spine improved so did your hips. I think some major celebrating is in order. I m raising my imaginary wine of glass to you as we speak. Well done, Canna. Keep up the good work. have a great week. take care...phyllis
I am so much more than a score, I am strong, healthy, active and like to help others.

Re: Dexa Results

Thank you Phyllis I am overjoyed!! My hip score decreased about 2 % but two years before my hip increased and was back to normal now I am mildly osteopenic. I can't figure it out but my specialist said not to worry its a small decrease .... but even so .. I kinda got out of walking and concentrated on yoga so I am thinking maybe that was the reason . I am taking all the same supplements strontium vit K and calcium etc. I am just going to increase exercises to stiumulate my hips and see what happens in my next dexa two years time. Overall I am thrilled that my spine increased and thank you for your kind and complimentary words.
