bone density screening

Posted on Nov 24, 2006 under Uncategorized |
I just had the bone density screening at the clinic a few minutes ago. This is done by the company’s health program for early detection, treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. Target for screening are those with history of osteopenic/osteoporosis and those suffering from frequent backaches employees aged 35 and up. I am young for the age bracket but i subjected to the screening anyway since i always complain about backpains. The nurse would put this gadget on the lower bone near the knees (forgot the proper term) like that of an ultrasound where they could see the bone structure in the monitor. If the dot falls on the green part in the graph after 5 cycles, it’s normal. If it falls on the yellow part, you have low calcium content. If it falls on the pink part, it means you have an osteoporosis. Geez! My first result fell on the boundary of pink and yellow. I love pink but hey not this one! It only meant that i’m indeed osteopenic! I asked for 2nd round of screening, this time with my left leg. What do you know? The tool cannot detect my bones. What am i? Boneless? (murag bangus! hehe!) So, we tried back on my right leg. After 5 cyles, it didn’t give any results because the detection was not stable. On to the 4th round, it gave out a result and this time the dot fell on the lowest part of the pink region - meaning i’m very very osteopenic! Waahhhh!!!! I’m too young for that! We tried for the last time and guess what? The result showed normal signs, the dot fell on the upper part of the green region. Which is which? I am to see the company doctor on Wednesday for further examination. Yay! I hate hospitals, i hate doctors, i hate lab tests!!! Waaaaahhhhh!!!! Haayyyy….*knock on the wood*

    Hi Ylan, kuyawa sab ana uy, basin naa deperensya ang machine/gadget or wharever you call it. It would be better if you seek second opinion kon unsa gani ang result, just to be sure. Pareha nako 4 na ka doctor ako giadto lately kay na bother jud ko aning akong tendinitis. Dugay mawala ang pain, sige ko ask ug lain napod na meds. akong hubby kay gikapoy nako ingon siya “dili man sili na mohalang dayon”. Na hala, Inday Ylan ari sa ko kay taas na ning akong yawit diri. Take care and God bless.
