Help understanding T score results
Hi, I am 70 years old, and was diagnosed with osteoporosis 2 years ago in lumbar spine. Other areas were OK or osteopenia. My spine T score was – 3.6 which worried my Dr so much she put me on Prolia (off topic but I had no side effects).
Two years later after Prolia and continuing all the diet and exercise recommendations, which I have done for decades, my lumbar spine t score was – 2.5 last week. (Other areas were apprx the same)
But on Fri. Night I got an email from my (new) Dr just saying that my osteoporosis had worsened and I needed to see a specialist. No other info or explanation.
I thought that score was an improvement?
What am I not understanding?
I cannot reach her until Wed. and am really stressing about this.
