Well I was diagnosed two years ago, put on Entocort for almost 2 years. I went to get a bone density test, through a study at UC Davis. I am only 38. My spine was 1 point away from osteoporosis from the steroids and I do take supplements and lift weights. I am sooo shocked. I have osteopenia in my hip as well but not as bad. I had a -2.4 on the T scale. 2.5 is osteoporosis. The study requires me to inject the meds daily and I am not sure I am up to it. But at least I know now and will get treatment somewhere. I don't really know where to begin right now. My primary told she would like to refer me to an osteo clinic for treatment. It's just so dissapointing, I'm sooo young!
