What Causes Osteoporosis In Women In Thirties
What would cause a spinal T-score of -6.0 in a 28 yr old female? Im really scared of my osteoporosis diagnoses! Help
Very low LS T-score: A lumbar spine T-score of -6.0 is extremely low, but is difficult to interpret before menopause because the scoring system was designed for postmenopausal women. Young women with a family history of osteoporosis and/or with anorexia nervosa can have T-scores this low. Fortunately, peak (highest) bone mass is not reached until your early 30s, so your bone density can improve with weight gain. ...Read more
I am a 42 yr old non-pregnant female recently diagnosed with transient osteoporosis. Uncommon. What causes this and how does it self-resolve?
All osteoporosis blood and urine work up from endocrinologist normal any other ideas on what would cause T-score of -6 in a 28 yr old female?
T-score at -6!: That is an extremely high T-score for any person, independent of age. Are you sure that the T-score was correct as reported? If so, please immediately see an Orthopedist. He/she will be stunned by the result and will carefully look at the data. There is almost certainly an error somewhere. If the bone density data is indeed correct you must very quickly see an Endocrinologist. Let me know result ...Read more

Flexural psoriasis between the legs, in female nothing helps very itchy then burns, no more atopical creams as they have caused osteoporosis , what ei?
2 weeks only: All topical cortisone creams should be limited to 2 weeks with a 1 week break before starting again. Protopic ointment is a non-cortisone product that works great for inverse psoriasis in the groin and sensitive skin areas. Thinning of the skin is a result of ling term cortisone cream use, not osteoporosis. Oral cortisone yes that's true. ...Read more
Yes: Estrogen deprivation (you've had your ovaries removed or they don't work) or exposure to certain medicines (eg, anti-psychotics, seizure medicines, steroids) can cause osteoporosis in women in their 30's. However, if you haven't been estrogen deprived or exposed to toxic medicines it's unlikely. Most women lose maximal bone mass within 3 years of after menopause. An xray test can determine risk. ...Read more
Genetic factors: At age 31 genetic factors and estrogen deficiency would be the most likely causes. Less commonly cortisone or other steroids, anorexia, immobilization, and a variety of drugs such as blockers of stomach acid secretion and antidepressive agents may cause bone loss. Long term vitamin d deficiency may also be a factor. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Immobilization: Hi. Both weight-bearing and muscle use are good for bone health. You're not weigh-bearing OR using muscles if you're immobilized. Skeletal mass and strength suffer. It appears that the cells that eat away bone (osteoclasts) are relatively more active than the cells that fill the eaten-out bone back in (osteoblasts), so there's a net loss of bone mass and bone architecture & urinary loss of calcium ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can bilateral oopherectomy cause someone to have osteoporosis and is there a way to stop it from worsening?
Yes: Ovarian removal obviously lowers estrogen dramatically, which can lead to increasing rates of bone loss and possibly osteoporosis. Calcium, vitamin d and exercise are important. Estrogen can be prescribed if you and your doctor agree to use it. There are other medications which can prevent bone loss. Talk w/your doctor to see if you need them. ...Read more
