Thanks Dr. You always come through!
I will ask for that DEXA test. If my bones are less dense, I wonder is there anything I can do or take. Kevin
Response from Dr. Young
Kevin-thanks for your follow up.
Yes, there are well established treatment standards for loss of bone density- from calcium supplements (with vitamin D) to prescription drugs like Fosamax. Before doing anything, get the DEXA and talk with your doctor about what the results mean.
Good luck, be well. BY
