    My wife is 70 and is in her 6th year of SS. Over the years her training has had gaps lasting from a few weeks to a few months due That said, she is most definitely stronger now than she would have been otherwise.

    Her recent DEXA scoring, compared to 2018, revealed, roughly, a 9% increase in her spine, and an 8% decrease in her femur neck.

    Makes no sense to me.

    I'm sure asking her doc to explain this disparity would be a waste of time.

    Anyone experienced this, or have any thoughts?

    Were the scans performed at the same place, using the same machine, at the same time, by the same technician?

    We will call her doc and the doc who read the scan and ask for interpretation. I'm not expecting much, tho'.

    Thanks for stoppin' by.
