Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis

The report below show an remarkable 9.4 PERCENT improvement in 12 months in one of my mature age female patients. As you can see the results were compared to a bone density test being done one year apart. This patient followed my recommendations to the letter and the results speak for themselves.

Bone Mineral Densitometry Study

A DEXA scan of the lumbar spline and femoral neck was performed using Geelong Database.

BMD (g/cm2)*T Score**Z Score
AP Femoral Neck0.656-2.35-1.17
AP Lumbar Spine
(Average L2-L4)
0.772-2.46-1.46

*T-Score = Number of standard deviations from the mean BMD in the healthy young adult population
**Z-Score = Number of standard deviations from mean BMD for current age/sex.

Comments

The BMD value in the femoral neck indicates osteopaenia.
The value in the lumbar spine indicates osteopaenia.

In comparison with previous study of 10/08/03 there has been a 5.7% increase in the BMD values in the femoral neck and 9.4% increase in the lumbar spine BMD values.

Each decrease in T score of 1 increases age-adjusted risk by a factor of about 2.

Thank you for referring this patient.

Supply the right conditions the body needs and will self-regulate, self adjust and self-heal where it is possible. But the patients must be willing to help themselves!
