Bone Density

Postby Smile*Lee » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:19 pm

I will be updating this with info from time to time.

Osteoporosis is one of the big concerns for women as we get older. The medical establishment would like you to believe there is no other way to rebuild your bones without using their medications. I've been researching natural ways to build bone density for 2 years. One of the things I've been doing is the Power Plate (Link below) - walk/jog, and weight bearing exercises. I'm posting the results of my current bone density test, the one I had 2 years ago, and my test in 1999. My hips are normal. One of my hips went from osteoporosis to osteopenia, almost back to where it was in 1999. My spine is just a smidge worse, but my power plate trainer gave me an exercise to improve this.

World Health Organization criteria for BMD impression
Normal (T-score at or above -1.0),
Osteopenia (T-score between -1.0 and -2.5), or
Osteoporosis (T-score at or below -2.5).

My Scans
AP Spine (L1-L4) 0.736 -2.8 -1.3 Osteoporosis
Femoral Neck (Left) 0.633 -1.9 -0.6 Osteopenia
Total Hip (Left) 0.823 -1.0 0.1 Normal
Femoral Neck (Right) 0.620 -2.1 -0.7 Osteopenia
Total Hip (Right) 0.818 -1.0 0.0 Normal
Femoral Neck Mean 0.626 -2.0 -0.6 Osteopenia
Total Hip Mean 0.820 -1.0 0.0 Normal

Year comparisons
AP Spine (L1-L4)
11/09/2017 61 0.736 -2.8 - slightly worse from 2015
10/21/2015 59 0.750 -2.7
01/18/1999 42 0.865 -1.7

Femoral Neck(Left)
11/09/2017 61 0.633 -1.9 - significant improvement!
10/21/2015 59 0.572 -2.5

Femoral Neck(Right)
11/09/2017 61 0.620 -2.1 - significant improvement! Almost to 1999 level!
10/21/2015 59 0.553 -2.7
01/18/1999 42 0.626 -2.0

Femoral Neck (Mean)
