Dear Chantelle
Bone density depends on your age, gender etc. Every machine that measures bone density has a built-in programme with normative data that was aquired from thousands of "normal" volunteers -so there is no specific calculation that you can do to determine your bone density%- it also depends on various variables like body frame, height, weight etc.
