Hi I am 28 years old and just had a DEXA bone scan because of excess Prednisone usage.
I am kind of bummed with the results...thought they would be fine!
Couldn't get a score on my spine because my L1 - L4 has Sclerosis.
My hips are -2.2 which is not good. I also had an xray of my spine and was told I have a transitional vertebrae in the L5.
I feel like even though my UC may be getting a tiny....very tiny bit better now Im getting hit with the side effects of the meds.
Oh and does anyone know what Sclerosis of the spine means?? Couldn't be a good thing probably...
