Oh dear! It looks like you are not meeting your daily dairy needs with your diet and your lifestyle means that it is not being made full use of in your bones.
Eating or drinking 3 to 4 servings of dairy throughout the day, spending time in the sun and not having too much protein, tea, alcohol and fibre all help your body to get the calcium it needs to maintain optimum bone health.
