Hello all, just saw the old thread about osteopenia pop up on the news feed. I was about to ask my own question about what relevance it has to autoimmune disease (lupus, sjogrens or APS) as I had a bone scan last friday and I have osteopenia. I was on steriods for 2 years straight about 11 years ago and a couple of tapers in the next couple of years after that. I'm wondering if that was enough to cause this but I thought it was usually to do with prolonged use of steroid. Is there any other association with autoimmune?
For the record I also have osteoarthritis in the hip joints...at 31 years old!😭
