Pam just noticed in your signature you have osteopenia which is the precursor to osteoporosis. I was talking with a very good friend of mine earlier in the week and a yr ago her Dexa Scan showed osteopenia. Her ob/gyn put her on 6,000 units of Vitamin D per day for one year. After the year she went down to 3,000 unit per day. Dexa Scan done last month showed the osteopenia gone!!! The high dose of Vitamin K knocked it out. Susie

You mean vitamin D don't you? Not vitamin K? Vitamin K clots the blood!

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I'm due for a Dexa Scan in the next couple of weeks. I sure don't want Osteoporosis. (Like anybody does)
If my Dexa Scan score isn't good, I will immediately talk to my Gynecologist about 6,000 units of Vitamin D.
Most of us stay out of the sun so much that our Vitamin D could be depleted.
I live in a place where you don't go outside most days of the summer -- 98-110 degrees. Something to think about
for sure!
Thank you, Susie Q
I wonder if you can buy 6,000 units of Vitamin D without a prescription. I'd do lots of research, of course.
