Re: Just dxed
HI pa235, with your dx of osteopenia does come with the chance of progression, but by doing the right things you can slow down how fast it moves into osteoporosis or how it will effect you. Another thing to keep in mind that while many with osteo do break bones, there are many who never have one occur. A good diet, good balance, exercise and supplements can do a lot in the way of helping your bones stay strong.
Since the nurse said you were just a tad over the levels for osteopenia, my guess is that you're probably closer to the normal ranges than than the osteoporosis -2.5. I'm glad to hear that no meds were recommended. take care, phyllis
I am so much more than a score, I am strong, healthy, active and like to help others.
