In my ponderings about good ways to build up bones, and manage/ reduce osteoporosis and low bone density, I found this rather useful website.
There's quite a lot of useful information in this website, I think - written by someone who has apparently managed to improve her bones by changing lifestyle, diet etc.
She also explains a bit about the DEXA scan results - and made me realise that there is apparently an actual scan one can look at. My GP didn't seem to know about this, so I am pondering how to get hold of mine.
Another point I thought would be useful - although others don't think it is is to access the Z values - showing how one compares with people of the same age. The number that most people think is important is comparing to bone density in 30 year olds.
However, I am also interested in how I compare to contemporaries - are my bones worse than everyone elses? - or are we all terrible...
