How bad is this?

DEXA hips osteoporosis -3.1. I'm only in my early 30s. Does this mean I will break a bone?

Re: How bad is this?

Sorry to hear you have osteoporosis, anything -2.5 or above. I've got or had a worse reading in my spine. Have you been to a specialist like an endocrinologist? Your 30, you have time to increase your bone density. I would ask what the cause of your low bone density is because if there's a specific reason that might point to the best treatment to improve your bone density and keep from loosing more. Let us know.
