Taking on my Osteoporosis
In 2013, at the age of 38, I was diagnosed with having osteopenia from a routine DXA scan.
Osteopenia is low bone density, not full blown osteoporosis.
No Treatment Available
Standard procedures in Ireland for someone with osteopenia or osteoporosis at a young age is to just monitor.
Medication has side effects, and muscle strength while young means there is not a lot of risk to the person involved.
Coming from a deeply technical background, and a deep curiosity to understand why I had osteoporosis, and more importantly what I could do about it, I dove deep into self-analysis and experimentation.
I wrote a blog post on my findings on medium here.
