This is a DXA Bone Densitometry Report.
To be exact, it’s two of those–one from 2012 and the other from 2014.
In case you can’t read the small print, these reports together say, “Melissa, you have to do something about your bones!!!!”
What they actually say is that from February 2012 until August 2014, I lost bone density and I already didn’t have that much to lose. The latest report tells me that I’m osteopenic with a T-score of -2.4. I learned that a normal T-score for my age is -1 or higher. If someone has osteoporosis, the T-score is -2.5 or lower. My T-score is awfully close to osteoporosis.
So, I’ve been learning about bones and bone density, and I’ve found out that I have a lot to learn! Do you have any advice? Please comment! I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned in the next few days, and I’d be thrilled if you would share, too!
