Here's mine: BMD DXA results-
Jan. 31, 2018
L1-L4 0.723 g/cm2 [T-score -3.3]
Left Femoral neck 0.580 g/cm2 [-2.6]
Left total hip 0.724 g/cm2 [-2.0]
RETESTED on March 17, 2020
L1-L4 0.790 g/cm2 [T-score -2.7] a notable INCREASE in bone density of +9.3% (+4.4%/yr), instead of the more typical -1%/yr
Left femur neck 0.576 g/cm2 [-2.6]
Left femur total 0.708 g/cm2 [-2.2] "no significant change" (within the method's measurement error limit of 0.025 g/cm2)
Both BMD DXA tests were outside my country's normal healthcare coverage. However, since the first test revealed unexpected osteoporosis, I was not charged. Since my second test showed an unexpected improvement, I may not receive an invoice for that either (else, I'll end up paying $120-$140 Cdn for the second test, well worth it to me in any event).
(no meds at all) LIFESTYLE CHANGES: I discovered my first test results 8/2019 (my GP denied my having 'secondary' osteoporosis at the time of testing (perhaps he mis-read my test??), I only found this out on receipt of my medical file when he retired). I've now read nearly 1,000 articles/studies (or if there was a charge to view the whole study, merely reviewed the 'abstract') and have viewed several youtube lectures and exercise programs. I've been seeking safe, risk free ways to boost my bone strength and protect myself from fractures/falling. I'm still hopeful of buying an airbag safety belt to ensure protection of my hips if I fall - there have been no useful responses to my query here on that, yet.
On 9/2019 I dropped glucosamine/chrondroitin which I'd been taking for five years for knuckle osteoarthritis (on 9/2019 I discovered it boosts eyepressure, which may explain my being checked for glaucoma, and that it messes with liver chemistry which might mask the diagnosis of the cause of my 'secondary' osteoporosis). It's possible that several months of then not taking an osteoarthritis supplement may have allowed osteoarthritic growths in my spine to start (no symptoms) which might artificially boost my measured spine BMD). I've examined the test imaging and I can see no sign of that, but while I trained as an analytical chemist and am very comfortable with handling and discussing measuring instruments/procedures and results, I've no experience in interpreting bone x-rays.
I'd been consuming the officially recommended amounts of Vitamin D and calcium for decades. My initial additional steps became: improving my balance (via one-legged standing and similar balance challenges along with leg/hip strengthening in safe settings, 'heel drops', back extensor muscle strengthening (I'm very impressed by the much cited Saki [CORRECTION: "Sinaki"] study for strengthening/protecting vertebrae --but allow ample time to recover as the once/twice weekly routine's tiring), taking vitamin K2 (about 4x the minimum daily requirement), and replacing any calcium supplements I was taking with dairy servings. I had a subsequent near fall after a couple of months of balance training and my reaction time was far faster than I deserved saving me from a likely disastrous fall, to which I credit my balance routines sharpening my awareness, reaction time, and agility.
Much more recent steps (far too soon to have influenced my last month's DXA test) that I'm hopeful of further improving my bone density are: reducing my calcium intake to the safer level of about 900mg/day [based on 60,000+ patients in a study showing where under 400 mg/day and over 850 mg/day of calcium intake coincided with progressively higher likelihoods of osteoporosis]. And, since Asian (especially Chinese) populations have much lower incidents of hip fractures and though their hip anatomy is very slightly different (and might be an influence), their dietary silicon intake is acknowledged as a likely factor and is more than double that of our western diets. So, I've started taking two 6 mg/day BioSil capsules to boost my silicon intake while also consuming more grains, such as brown rice and oatmeal. After just five weeks, I've already noted my nails are less prone to cracking/splitting (an unexpected bonus). Another high silicon food is green beans, btw.
