: Hi! I went to my chiropractor and he did a DEXA screening on my finger. It came out on the low side, .9, not osteopenia, but close. I had the same test last year and was .7, so my bone density decreased. My concerns are this test accurate or should I have a test of my larger bones? Should I be worried? Should I see a specialist? My mom has osteo and I would like to prevent it. Should I take iprivalone? Can I takeit if I am not menapausal? I exercise, eat right and take calcium. I am thin, but not underweight.

Hello! I would definitely start doing weight bearing exercise if you aren't already. I've recently read an article that says jogging is better than walking because of the stress it puts on the bones. Also start taking calcium, boron, magnesium, vit K, vit D, vit E, etc. There are some good bone supplements out there that have everything included. You want a high quality one that you have to take over the course of the day (one a day pills aren't the best). I also recommend the MCHC form of calcium. I take Ipriflavone (started about a month ago) but I have osteopenia. Good luck! There is alot of good nutritional information out there for your bones, we need alot more than just calcium!
