After having a dexa scan yesterday, it seems I now have osteopenia rather than full blown osteoporosis, which is really good news..and very surprising too!

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis about 13 years ago, took alendronic acid for five years along with high dose calcium and vit D. Was taken off aa eight years ago but continued with calcium and vit D.

Ive had to take lots of steroids in the last seven or eight years, which also have an effect on bone density, so was very surprised and hugely pleased that I now won't have to take aa again, just keep on with high dose calcium and vit D, and a healthy lifestyle, well, as healthy as my lifestyle is..maybe it's all the gin I consume which has helped 😉🍸
