: I: I have been reading many of the messages,but cannot seem to tell if anyone has a T-score as severe as -5.3 in the spine. I was diagnosed at the age of 39 with with severe osteoporosis and have 6 compression fractures . If anyone has severe osteoporosis such as mine please E-mail me PatL50@mediaone.net. I might add that I have undergone every test possible and the cause remains unknown.
: I was diagnosed with osteoporosis at the age of 44
: almost 5 years ago. There was almost no change
: in follow up bone scans. Last year my endo ordered parathyroid
: parathyroid scan and thyroid scans. They Para=
: thyroids were hyperactive, taking calcium from
: bones. Also had thyroid nodules which turned ou
: to be cancer. I had a total thyroidectomy and
: half of each parathyroid was removed. Have you
: been tested for thyroid or parathyroid disease?
: I wish you luck. This can be a very frightening
Camille thank you for answering the posting. I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos thyroiditis,but have never had a thyroid scan or a parathyroid scan done. My Endo has checked the levels of parathyroid hormone only. Would that be enough or can you only tell by a scan? Please E-mail me at PatL50@mediaone.net. How are you doing since your surgery?
