femoral neck z scor-0.6
i have been asked to take high dosage of vitamin d for 6 weeks with calcium
is this okay and also how bad is my diagnosiz
All of your scores are good with the exception of the spine score which shows relatively serious osteoporosis. I have recently been diagnosed with osteoporosis and am, myself, looking for the best treatment. It is my understanding that the results of using calcium and vitamin D are questioniable so I am not going that route. My daughter says that large studies show that soy protein is beneficial (see Andrew Weil) and the doctor who read my tests said that in Europe they are using strontium. I am researching both. You may want to do the same.
