    T Score Value

    I recently had a bone density test. My spine score is AP SPINE L1-L4. BMD 0.88 g/cm2. T-score = -2.6. Z-score = -1.2. LOWEST BMD is Right femoral neck BMD = 0.75 g/cm2 T-score = -2.1. Z-score = -0.8. Can someone explain this to me and let me know if they are normal?

    Thank you for responding, but I'm still confused with my T score being -2.6 I'm assuming I do not have osteoporosis, right?

    -2.6 is barely osteoporosis as this is the number at which it begins. -1.1 to-2.5 is considered osteopenia. 0- -1.0 is normal. Weight bearing exercise can help increase density. Also, if you are so inclined and are menopausal, HRT can really help. Mine went from-1.6 to -1.0.
