Jeni wrote in with another take on the situation: "I've had a number of bone mineral density tests over the years. They're easy.
The thing with calcium uptake is, it's not how much calcium you are consuming, but how well it is able to get into your bones.
That is my big hassle.
The key there is vitamin D3. Because of the pre-existing problems with my bones, I have to take a moderate dose of that daily to aid calcium uptake.
Crop-top bras are great for these tests. No metal at all to worry about.
As for pants that depends on the temperature.
Colder days, elastic waist jeans. No metal zips, clips, buttons or rivets.
Summer, three-quarter length, elastic waist, cream linen pants.
As for tops, whatever co-ordinates well, that has no metal.
I tend to wear my blue or green t-shirts, as that allows me to also wear my blue, green, and white bead necklace which has no metal at all.
White sandals completes the outfit for hot days, while black shoes are the go for cooler days."
And, Connie added: "
I've had to undergo a couple of MRIs and a CT scan, and they've always made me change into a hospital gown. The problem I have with metal, though, is that all of my wigs have a small piece of metal at the temples. You don't have that problem, of course, but I have had to bring a turban to avoid the embarrassment of going into the machine with a bald head. I'm overdue for a lobotomy, though, so I don't know what I'll do after I get that metal plate on my skull. :-)"
