Cathy Black - Kingston, Ontario
Hello, my name is Cathy Black.
Last year, I fell and I broke my wrist. I was sent for a DEXA Scan shortly there after. It was determined that my T-scores were quite low. In fact, it was shocking. I was healthy, I wasn't underweight, I did resistance workouts, and I didn't have any other family members who had issues with T-scores being low.My doctor was wonderful, and patiently and thoroughly went through all of the recommendations that I was to consider. I found out, also at that time, that a medication I had been taking for 30 years, prior to this event, had most likely caused the majority of the damage to my bones. I did my part, I read, and I read for three months.
In October, I decided to take AlgaeCal. Also, under my doctor's supervision, she helped me ween off the medication that I had been on. I decided to take AlgaeCal because I was drawn to the components of the supplement, and all the advice that they gave on nutrition and exercise as well. I continued on with my resistance workouts. I ate as organically as possible and continued to go for walks. At the nine month mark of having implemented some of the changes in my life, I am thrilled to say that my repeat T-scores nine months after my first, all of these
changes started to occur. Was 5.7% increase in my L1-L4. My Total Hip increased by 6.5%. My Femoral Neck increased by 9.5%.
I am so grateful and so happy. I had hope and I have hope going forward. I wish all of you who are in that decision making process the very best.
