T Score

Hi everyone,

I got my dexa scan results today and would like to ask you whether it means I have osteopenia in my spine - T score of -2.2? Hip score was +0.2. The consultant said I didnt need any treatment as yet. So no osteoporosis, but does the first score mean I have osteopenia. The letter didnt explain anything, bit confusing the T scores etc, anyone help please?

Osteopenia is T Score between
-1 and -2.5. Anything below -2.5 is Osteoporosis.

Re: T Score

Hi Ronnied, your T-score show how much your bone mass varies or deviates from the average bone mass of a healthy adult with "normal" density. Your hip score is normal, your spine is osteopenia. take care, phyllis

Re: T Score

Thank you both very much. Do I need to do anything regarding Osteopenia in spine? Should I request calcium tablets etc?

Re: T Score

Hi, it would be a good idea to start taking calcium/D3, and magnesium supplements. If your not exercising regularly you might want to start doing some weight training, walking, jogging or other foot impact activity. Right now your in good shape regarding your bones and your goal now is to keep them that way. take care, phyllis
