A T-score of -2.7 shows that M.S. has Osteoporosis (-2.5 or lower) because according to the World Health Organization (WHO) a score of -2.5 or below is a diagnosis of Osteoporosis.

To interpret the BMD test results:

Normal (-1 and above) Osteopenia/low bone mass (Between -1 and -2.5) Osteoporosis (-2.5 or lower) Severe Osteoporosis (-2.5 or lower and at least 1 fragility fracture)
