What The Heck is Osteopenia?
Break as few bones as possible and make as much noise as you can.
Imagine my surprise when I found out I had Osteopenia, and I was .4% away from having full-blown Osteoporosis in my left hip. Check it out, I'm posting the results of my latest bone density tests that were done on April 29, 2019, at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Osteopenia is when your bones are weaker than normal but not so far gone that they break easily, which is the hallmark of osteoporosis.
A T-score between +1 and −1 is considered normal or healthy. A T-score between −1 and −2.5 indicates that you have low bone mass, although not low enough to be diagnosed with osteoporosis. A T-score of −2.5 or lower indicates that you have osteoporosis. The greater the negative number, the more severe the osteoporosis.
