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

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 2 more doctor answers
