I just got my bone mass density from a Walgreens mobile healthfair van for free. You have to put your foot in a machine and it reads it very quickly. My score was a .2
The T-score guages are as follows
Nomal = Above -1.0
Osteopenia = Between -1.0 and -2.5
Osteoperosis = Below -2.5
I was wondering if anyone else has taken one of these test and what kind of results did you all get after being on prednisone.
