pft/bone density results

This afternoon, I received the results about last week's tests from my nurse practitioner. The PFT was just fine. In fact, my lungs are stronger now than they were in 2007 when I last performed this test in preparation for my allogeneic stem cell transplant. And according to the bone density test, my Vitamin D measured 25.8, which is not bad, but the ideal, she told me, is 30. I was encouraged to continue using OSCAL Calcium Supplement with Vitamin D daily but also a separate Vitamin D supplement with a dosage of 1,000 international units per day.

Duane - I believe you mean your vitamin D level was 25.8. I am glad you are doing so well!

Yes, you're right, Roseann! My bad. ;) It's Vitamin D. I'm going to edit it now.

Thanks for the correction.
