Ok I'm 26 years old and this morning I was diagnosed with osteopenia borderline osteoporosis. I mannaged to get this from undiagnosed celiac disease (autoimmune disorder triggered by ingesting gluten) as a child, coupled with cortisteroid treatments. My dr has started me on Boniva which I intend to take on the first of the month. I'm also on a high calcium diet with 1500mg calcium a day. I'm very active I love running, cycling, weight lifting, and hiking. I'm also a full time working single mother, and a student. I've been advised to becareful of falls and to lower my impact on the weights for fear of fractures. Needless to say being so young I'm very upset with this news it was not something I expected after 3 years gluten free. Luckily I had a good dr that insisted on this scan because I'd hate to think of how I would have found out other wise probably through a broken bone.
