I just had a bone density or a DXA Axial test and I am trying to understand the results. I am pretty sure I have osteopenia so I am really freaking out. I have been athletic all my life,but now this!
I took the test as a preventative measure to reassure a Primary Care Physician that I was fine or so I thought. The whole issue came up about me suppressing my TSH eith T3 only meficine for my Hashimotos.
Now the results and how to reverse this ASAP???
AP Lumber Spine: T score -1.8, Z score -1.5 bone mineral density 0.846 g/cm2 L1-L4 eas measured.
Left Femoral Neck: T score -2.2, Z score -1.8, bone mineral density 0.608 g/cm2
Left Total Hip: T score -1.7, Z Score -1.5, bone density 0.735 g/cm2
How severe is this? I am only 42 years old.
Can rebounding really reverse this??
I am pretty shocked and bummed....🤤😭
