Still Pretty Dense

So I got my Bone Density Test Results…

I have “mild” osteopenia.  Which, Osteopenia is already mild… so a mild version is, basically… “hey, you passed 35, lady, get used to it”

Anyway…  to make sure it stays that way I need…

A Calcium supplement (which I have already been taking for years)

An additional Vitamin D Supplement (which I started taking last week when my Doc said my vintamin D levels were low)

And…  weight bearing exercise…  which, it just so happens, I’ve been wanting to start lifting weights…  really lifting… havy ones, not just the little dumbells I’ve got at home.

So I guess it all works out then.

Yay Bones!

And no, I still haven’t scheduled that pesky mammogram… I guess that’s coming soon.

    Congratulations on being healthy! […and for passing 35!]

    One of the only perks to being overweight is that the weight is a weight-bearing exercise, and so osteopenia is unusual among the chubsters.

    Does NOT overrule the downsides of being a chubster.
