Kathryn Monson - Logan, UT
Hi, I'm Kathryn and I'm just turning 68 years old. I've always been interested in health and I've been an avid walker and hiker and enjoy exercising in different ways. And about three years ago, I was out sledding with my grandchildren, and I injured my wrist. So, I went in to the doctor and they did X-rays, and fortunately, I had just sprained my wrist and had not broken it. But I was concerned because the doctor said it appeared I was having some setting of my bones.
So he ordered a DEXA scan and I was pretty devastated to get the results that my T-scores were anywhere -2.3 to -2.4, and I was very concerned. And the only advice I got from the doctor was to take calcium and vitamin D3 and to do weight-bearing exercises and be walking. Well I was already walking about the equivalent of a 5K every morning, and was taking vitamin D3.
So I added in calcium and took that for about a year and then just started doing more research online. And I found out about AlgaeCal, and about 15 months ago I started taking AlgaeCal and Strontium Boost. And about last summer my doctor had recommended that we do another DEXA scan. I wanted to wait and give the AlgaeCal a little bit more chance to work and he agreed with that.
So I just had my second DEXA scan, and I was just thrilled that all of my T-scores were -1.8, and that meant an improvement of over 8% to my spine, 9% to my hip, and I was just thrilled.
And I've kept up my exercising, and go to an aerobics class a couple of times a week and do some weightlifting as well as with my walking. But now I feel like I'm on a good path. I will continue to take AlgaeCal and I'm just excited and so grateful for AlgaeCal and for the improvement that I'm seeing and the difference it's making in my life. Thank you, AlgaeCal.
