Ok, so one of the local colleges nursing program had a health fare at the gym where I work the other day . And one of the things they were offering was a bone density scan, Which I have never had done . So I figured what the hell it is free and nothing is wrong with me right ?
So the test begins and she is scaning my arm over the Radius and all is well untill she prints out my little graph showing my results. And come to find out I have osteopinya(sp) which is basicly the 1st step towards Osteoporosis she tells me . So needless to say I am kinda scared considering my age ,level of activity and general style of living .
So my question is should I be scared and what can I do to fight this ? As soon as I got ahold of this new info I began to take calcium and vitamin D which I have not been takeing in the past .
Also if stats help I am 21 year old white male with no family history of bone density problems .I lift 3 times a week and run/jog any where from 3-8 miles per week .
weight : 240
BF : 16-18%
Thank you ahead of time for any comments .
