Bone Density Examination Results?
good morning, I want to ask if the T score shows -2.5 SD at the waist and -2.6 SD at the pelvis what do you mean?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
You may have heard the term bone density or bone mass test, or sometimes bone mineral density test (BMD). They all refer to one general test to determine bone health by measuring bone mass. This test is used to diagnose osteoporosis, risk of fractures, and measure the response to osteoporosis treatment. where this examination can repeat the test every one or two years. This will allow doctors to diagnose with osteoporosis and provide appropriate treatment.
After taking the test, you will be given a T-score: the number shows your bone density compared to the average number of healthy adults who are 30 years old. The lower the amount you have, the more likely you are to have bone disease.
where the results of the T score you mentioned -2.5 SD in the waist indicate having a low bone mass, although not low enough to be diagnosed with osteoporosis. You should consider asking for drugs to prevent osteoporosis to help slow down bone loss and prevent osteoporosis in your future. Your doctor may ask you to maintain healthy habits such as eating foods rich in calcium and vitamin D and doing exercise by holding weights such as walking, jogging, or dancing. While -2.6 SD in the pelvis indicates that you have osteoporosis. The lower the score, the more severe the osteoporosis. In this case, you have to take medicine. While the results are from -1 to +1: Normal.
You should immediately consult a doctor about the results of these examinations so that the doctor can confirm further by conducting direct examinations and additional examinations such as blood tests and photographs rongen if needed so that the doctor can provide appropriate therapy.
Thus the info we can provide
hopefully can help
