I was prescribed AA in Jan 2014 when my GP diagnosed PMR. Having started on 40mg Pred I reached 4mg in December. Iasked my GP about giving up AA, and she said no, so I asked for a DXA scan. This happened before Christmas, and I was told that the result would be with my GP in 10-15 days.
Yesterday I received the good news. bone density normal, with a 10 year Fracture risk of 3.6% of a Major Osteoporotic Fracture, 0.6% for a hip fracture. There is a comment in the report that my bone density is above average for my age (79) so good news altogether.
I just need to continue with the Adcal, which is no problem.
I opened a bottle of wine last night - but I didn't drink it all!
