Hi all, my gastro doc ordered a bone density test - he said I should be tested as I'm thin and have had the UC diagnosis since 2008, have an ostomy now but still don't absorb nutrients normally. I just got the osteoporosis diagnosis today. I have an appointment with an endocrinologist at the end of January and I assume I will have to have transfusions of meds rather than oral meds due to my digestive issues. Does anyone have any experience with this? My mom had this, but she drank coffee all day and chain smoked. I guess I thought I could avoid it with my healthy lifestyle (which I had when I was diagnosed with UC, but it didn't prevent my disease.) Oh well, any info much appreciated. Thanks!
