Bone Health and Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis: A Silent Menace

Osteoporosis (OP) affects 24 million Americans.   OP has no warning  symptoms - the first sign is a hip or leg, or spine fracture.   At which point,  there are plenty of symptoms and a major impact on over all health and even longevity.

Bone Density tests Show the Level of Risk

The bone mineral density test, called a DEXA scan, is the only way to get a precise measurement of the state of calcium density and strength of  bones.  This test is important.  In general, we recommend women to start DEXA scan 5 years after menopause, men by age 60.

Why does Osteoporsis Happen

Bone is constantly recycling itself.  Old bone tissue is absorbed by cells called osteoclasts.  Replacement new bone is produced by osteoblasts cells.   Most OP is the result of bone resorption being too fast relative of bone building.
