I am a 32 yr old who has had a complete hysterectomy and oophorosalpingectomy in April 2012, I had my first Dexascan a couple days ago and here were my results, 0.8 in my hips and -2.7 in my spine, The OBGYN put me on Minivelle and told me I need to drop 55-60 lbs (however I am only 5'4 and 189lbs) and possibly go see a bone specialist, what can anyone recommend for someone my age to help make my prognosis a little more positive rather that negative?View Thread
Help, I am 32 yrs old and I have had a few medical issues in my "young" age, I had to have my very first Dexascan and it was determined that I have Osteoporosis so bad that if I cough wrong I could break a vertebra, they say my hips are fine but my spine is like wet tissue paper, does anyone have any recommendations for someone young like myself to either reverse (i know that its not really reversible) or prevent it from being worse?View Thread
