I am recovering from a fractured hip after a fall in April and have discovered after a DEXA scan that I have Osteoporosis. I am 60 years old and very active - walking/gym and this is all quite a shock.
I couldn't take all the info in at the bone clinic when told, so blindly went along with daily 1000mg calcium and weekly Alendronic Acid tablet - which I have had no problem with so far, but it seems the benefits are minimal.
My DXA T score is -4.3 lumbar and -2.5 hip, and it seems this is not good! I am really concerned and confused as there is so much information out there it is difficult to see a way through.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
