I have osteopenia too.  It could be my age (almost 51) or genetics, since my Mom has it and so did my Grandma. It could be because I had my kids when in my thirties.  I wasn't on Prednisone for very long with UC, just a few weeks, but I do take Budesonide, which can also be considered a steroid, so maybe that is part of the cause. Whatever the case, I now take calcium supplements, Vitamin D3, and do strength training and cardio work to keep the bone density I have from getting smaller.  I can't turn back time, but I can sure try to keep if from getting worse.
