I just got my Medicare and found to have osteoporosis (-2.5) two years ago. This is really unbelievable, as I believe I'm pretty healthy (no problems in blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose). The only problem I have now is pain (osteoarthritis?) on both knees, which is under treatment. It could be because I did not have enough calcium when I was young (?). I took Fosamax for two years. A recent check up found that the bone got worse to -3.2. It was really a shock. Honestly, I expected a much better result after two years of treatment. My PCP said, with my age, I'll tend to be in that range. I expected the minimal result after treatment is to bring it back to anything between -1 and -2.5, but why it got worse? And how to bring it back to that range, which is actually not I'm looking for. What can I do to bring it back to a positive number (Is this possible?)?
