Dear Cheryl
You supply too little information for me to make any comment. There is a whole spectrum of "osteopenia" and treatment (if indicated) needs to be based on information like age, calcium intake, exercise and other risk factors for the development of osteoporosis. You can contact me at the Osteoporosis Foundation tel 021 9317894.
