The xray place next door to Tio Sam's has a sign saying they now do bone density testing. Saw the sign in the last few weeks.

Good to know and must be new because it was a Quality Care doctor who sent me to Guad.

They have a device that they put on your heel to check for bone density, but I have had many Drs. say they are not a good test. Best to have the kind where they do the hip and and back area.

When I had the test in Calif. maybe 10-13 years ago, I was put on Fosamax for 2-years; one tab a week. I don't recall if I got a recheck, but so far, I haven't broken anything.

For myself, it's because I know what can happen if I fall and break a hip due to osteoporosis. Don't you go for regular checkups: Yearly physical?

As I used to tell my then 87-year-old father- "Somethings going to kill you so why not live while you can and quit worrying it." He died in his sleep while napping on a Sunday afternoon.
