Know Your T-score. Your Bones Are Counting on It.

The result of your test is called a T-score, and it’s important to know what it means. Your T-score compares your bone mass with that of a population of normal young adult women.

Talk to Your Doctor

It’s important to talk with your doctor about your T-score and other risk factors. Both of you may feel that if your bone mass is 10% or more below normal, you may want to take steps to help reverse your bone loss.

DID YOU KNOW? If your T-score is less than -1.0, talk to your doctor about treatment options.

Ask About Treatment Options

The following chart helps illustrate the T-score and provides a guide to know when to begin discussing treatment options with your doctor.
