Guidance & Advice
Following the two scans, you will then sit down with the bone health specialist as part of the appointment to go through your results.
Your results are shown on the computer screen and explained to you.
Depending on your results, advice will be given regarding any changes in lifestyle or nutrition that might need to be made.
For instance, you may be advised to start exercises or take certain supplements. In some cases, you may be advised to take your results and to go and see your GP to discuss other options.
You may also be advised to have a further REMS scan 12 - 36 months in the future to monitor any changes especially if you are starting on a new impact exercise regime. The consultant specialist has 35 years of clinical experience in orthopaedics and bone health so you can be assured that you have the right person in front of you. He will answer any questions about your bone health that you may have.
You will be given a folder with general bone health information to take away and read at your leisure.
