An 82-year old female with known osteoporosis was reassessed for bone mineral density (BMD) measurement. Her baseline BMD and lumbar spine T-score (L1-L4) measured in 2004 was 0.699 g/cm2, –3.5 SD, total left hip T-score was 0.618 g/cm2, –2.7 S.D. She was treated with alendronate 70 mg, cholecalciferol 7000 IE per week and calcium supplements for some years. On follow-up in 2013 DXA of lumbar spine and hip, BMD of lumbar spine L1-...
