Bone density testing
According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, approximately 10 million Americans already have some level of osteoporosis. It is also estimated that approximately half of all women 50 years old and older will break a bone due to the disease.
Certain people are more likely to develop osteoporosis than others, which is why we offer bone density testing to determine the density of the bone and the risk of a bone breaking.
Risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing osteoporosis include:
- Women 50 years old and older
- Family history of osteoporosis and/or broken bones
- Small frame and/or thin build
- History of broken bones
- Low hormone levels
- Poor diet
- Inactive lifestyle
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Taking certain medications
- Testing positive for certain diseases and conditions, such as anorexia nervosa, rheumatoid arthritis or gastrointestinal diseases
