Bone Density Testing
Our bones are constantly changing. Around the age of 30 bones reach their peak strength and then naturally become weaker with age. When bone mass loss occurs the condition is known as osteoporosis leading to increased risk for bone fractures.
Bone density can be measured to help your doctor gauge your fracture risk.
Risk factors for osteoporosis include:
~ advanced age
~ family history of osteoporosis
~ early menopause
~ removal of the ovaries
~ a low calcium diet
~ lack of exercise
~ eating disorders
~ certain medicines (such as steroids)
~ alcohol use
~ tobacco use
~ maternal history of fracture
~ small, thin frame
Osteoporosis can be prevented and treated, reducing its risks.
Throughout the year we host a Women's Health Issues series free of charge as a service to the community. Presentations are held at Newton Memorial Hospital. Please note that registration is required to allow adequate seating.
