I'm new here but not on the PMR forum! Yesterday I had the result of my first ever Dexa scan: -3.6 so Osteoporosis it is☹️. Shock, horror!
I have all the risk factors: 1 year on Prednisolone (now on 5mg), female age 72, always lowish body weight ( now 58 kgs), but never had a fracture, lots of exercise ( a Scottish dancer till PMR struck), good diet- lots of dairy, fish no red meat.
Stomach issues as a result of steroids but otherwise doing well
So AA or not??? Please your thought and experiences would be gratefully received.
