My six year old son recently had a bone density scan done (routine under his GI doc at 6-7 years of age) and the results show a low bone density. So now he's referring us to an endocrinologist for follow-up. Obviously some kind of supplementation is going to happen. What I really want to know is what can we expect the doctor to do initially? My son is nervous and with him, a step-by-step plan is always helpful. So if anyone has gone through this, I'd appreciate some input. I plan on asking the office when they call to set up the appointment. Thanks!

With my low bone density they just told me to up my calcium and Vit D for a year and then they'd do another scan to check and see if I had improved. I'm sure he has nothing to be concerned with. It will likely just be a visit with talking.
