... You may not be too bad off with no menstrual periods for just nine months - it's really hard to say. It might be a good idea to make a list of your concerns and discuss them with your OBGYN or another health care specialist.

I don't drink other beverages with caffeine so I hope it helps. From all I've read and heard research seems to support that it's better to avoid caffeine for better bone density. (3 replies)

... I've been taking Evista for a year and it's great, except that now my esophagus is getting affected. It seems harder to swallow, I mean I feel my esophagus, and my breathing is a little harder.

... In researching low bone density I've learned that many young adult women (your age group) have it. Sometimes severe athletic training causes it like ballet dancing gymnastics, excessive running, etc. There may be other reasons but it's hard to say. The important thing is to prevent progression by educating yourself and eliminating the risk factors that you CAN CHANGE -... (7 replies)
... Hello Faith: Hey, good for you - you were able to get your T-score. Okay, why don't you compare yours to mine. My T-score on the femur was -1.3 and everything I've seen calls it borderline low bone density. Not bad enough to be called osteoporosis yet. The BMD was .839 on the femur. My spine was above that of an average healthy young adult at BMD 1.204. So your lowest... (9 replies)

And remember, all drugs have side effects! (64 replies)
