A 35-year-old female asked:

Is osteopenia reversible?

Yes: Likely, more so for osteopenia than osteoporosis. Weight bearing exercises, making sure vitamin d and calcium intake is maximized. Vitamin k2 is also good and under appreciated in the medical community.

Potentially: If you have osteopenia at age 35 need to consider secondary causes of osteopenia. Should supplement vit d and calcium. Regular wt bearing exercise.

Low bone calcium: Osteopenia is low but not dangerously low bone calcium. You need to talk to your doctor to see if you need treatment.
