... That percent change refers to the g/cm2 from the DEXA readout AND not the T-score. Never compare T-scores. Always compare g/cm2. Also, what is the machines precision and error OR what they call least significant change. Most rheums and endos would consider stopping bone loss a win as they would with an increase. Of course an increase is better but stopping the loss seems to... (2 replies)

Then, in November, I stepped off a high stage and broke my ankle in 3 places. I got two pins on one side and a plate on the other. Couldn't put weight on it for 3 months. I don't... (5 replies)

... Hi All: Osteo ask me a while back how to figure the percentage increase/decrease on 2 dxa scores, and I ran across this calculator if you want to try it. You need the g/cm2 figures to do it, but try it out, if you are trying to figure your percentage of change between 2 scans, or you can compare 3 different scanners/scores, that may vary from one another. Most dxa print... (4 replies)
... I thought the higher the number the more bone loss on the Dexa score, so I'm a bit confused. If this is correct than your left femur score has increased slightly indicating more, not less, bone loss. I may be incorrect on the information you are presenting. I hope so. That anything has decreased is certainly something to celebrate, though! That you are also doing weight... (17 replies)

... Jacal- My doctor told me not to focus on the T scores but rather on the g/cm2. If you look at that , how did you do? Also, what did the technician mean when she said your previous score was fraudulent??? (4 replies)
... SierraWalker-does your monitor just sit on the counter or is it further elevated on the counter by something that it sits i on?

... Meaurement of left femur showed a drop in BDM (g/cm2) from 0.724 to 0.714 which dropped me from -2.3 last year to -2.4 this year, I don't know what the error rates are.
