Know Your T-Score

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines osteopenia as a T-score between 1.0 and 2.5 and osteoporosis as a T-score worse than 2.5.

Why should you know your T-score? A T-score is a measure of your bone density that compares it to a young normal. It is as important for you to know your T-score as it is for you to know your cholesterol numbers or your blood pressure.

A T-score is the result of a test that measures your bones using a type of X-ray. The gold standard test is called DXA. Every woman over 65 should have a DXA, but a pro-active approach is to have a DXA when menopausal symptoms begin or soon after a hysterectomy. This provides a baseline for future tests. You should have a follow-up DXA every year or two or as recommended by your doctor. If your T-score remains stable, then the period between tests can be increased. If your T-score goes down significantly from one test to another, you should discuss some type of intervention with your doctor. Twice daily dosing with the genistein found in FOSTEUM PLUS has been shown to increase BMD at the hip and spine with continued use.
