Osteoporosis is defined as low bone strength (low density or poor bone quality). Unfortunately it is a silent disease until it manifests with its terrible consequence: a bone fracture. An osteoporotic fracture should be a “NEVER EVENT” since it can be prevented with the right treatment strategy.
Checking the Bone Mineral Density with a DXA scan is recommended to all women 65 year-old or older; and younger patients with risk factors.
Have you had your DXA scan?
