Yeah. Arthritis s**ks. But it is a normal part of aging. I got it so bad in my hip that I had to have a hip replacement. As far as bone density scans go -- if you are middle-aged or above, your scan will probably show statistically signifiant deterioration since last scan. This may not be bad enough to diagnose osteoporosis or osteopenia, but some density loss is inevitable as we age. I had a density scan at 49, which said my bones were fine. Again at 54, which said I had lost density since last scan but was still fine. I need to have another next year.. here's hoping.

My husband has osteoporosis. It's actually less common in males than in females. His doctor told him he needed to get more calcium and to get it from his diet. So he has yogurt and mild and cheese all the time. I make stews with kale. We keep almonds on hand all the time.

I drink nearly a quart of milk every day and take Vitamin D supplements.
