DEXA result, bone loss

DEXA showed -8.3% deterioration since last scan. How bad is this (I'm in my early 30s)?
Can it be reversed without medication?

Re: DEXA result, bone loss

What was the score not the percentage of difference?

Re: DEXA result, bone loss

Why did you have the scan at this young an age? Do you have a health problem that thry thought might impact your bone density? When you had the first one, what efforts did you make to reverse it - calcium, vitamin D and C, weight bearing exercise, cardio?
