Cindy Geston - Fargo, ND
Hello, my name is Cindy, and I've been on AlgaeCal for the past two and a half years. I'm 59 years old. I had my first DEXA scan when I was 55, my doctor ordered it and I'd always been a runner, lifted weights, very healthy person, I thought, so I was quite excited for the results to come back.
So when they came back and I had a lumbar spine number of -3 and a right femur of -2.6, I was absolutely devastated. So I felt very frustrated and just went on typical calcium pills for a year, didn't know what else to do. And then a year later I found AlgaeCal and thought, I will give that a try.
So I started AlgaeCal and 15 months after starting that I had my next bone scan, which was actually two and a half years from my first one, but just 15 months after going on AlgaeCal, my lumbar spine had gone from -3 to a -2.6 and my right femur had gone from -2.6 to -2.2.
I was then seeing a bone specialist at that time and she immediately had said, "Keep doing what you're doing, it's working and we'll recheck you in a year."
So I was completely delighted and I kept doing my, you know, walking and running and weightlifting and trying to eat healthy and had another bone scan 15 months after that, which was just a few weeks ago. And my numbers now had gone from 18 months ago to a -2.6 in my lumbar spine to -2.2 and my right femur from -2.6 or -2.2 to -2.1.
So all in all, I have had a huge increase in my bone mass. From the first time I started taking AlgaeCal two and a half years ago, I've gone from a -3 to a -2.2 in my spine and a -2.6 to a -2.1 in my right femur.
So I am completely encouraged and I'm now going to start adding the fish oil and I encourage anyone to try it. It truly works, there was no side effects, it's easy to take and gave me such great peace of mind.
The radiologist even noted on my report that the increase was statistically significant and the doctors are encouraging me to keep doing what I'm doing. So thank you to AlgaeCal, and I hope you have the same good results.
