Has anyone had a bone density test because of long term steroid use?


I have not...But I really should. Osteoperosis run high in my family and I know long term steriod use can cause this...which I fall into that catergory

I have, but everything was fine. My rheumy suggests I get one once a year. Not only because of the steroid use, but because of my eating disorder.

I want to have one done...but I am nervous because I dont know what they do...wanna give me the low down so I'm not so nervous. I'm just gonna ask one of these days going into the Dr. I know he will agree considering how much I have been on Prednisone over the course of the last five years.

Oh honey, it's nothing. It's just like an X-Ray or CT scan. You just lie on a table for like 15 or 20 minutes.
