This is my first time posting on here. I have some autoimmune issues but have just found out via a DEXA pelvic scan that I have osteopenia (I'm 46). Because I started on bioidentical HRT recently, the hospital said to wait & see if those had any effects & to re-scan in 3 years.
Should I follow this diagnosis up with my GP? Do i need to be taking extra calcium? I'm on an elimination diet at the moment (no dairy, gluten) for my autoimmune issues so am a little concerned about this & wondering about supplementing.
I exercise when I can - dog walks daily, swim, pilates etc 1-2 times per week.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated as internet seems a mix of advice.
