As a woman ages, her bones become thinner and more fragile. When the density of bone is reduced so much that bone quality is to low it fractures.
This disease is known as Osteoporosis.
Often Osteoporosis goes unnoticed until it is too late and a fracture has occurred.
However, a bone density test can diagnose this early and help put in place preemptive measures to avoid a broken bone.
A bone density test can reveal:
if you have weak bones or osteoporosis before you suffer a fracture
predict your chance of breaking a bone in the future
see if your bone density is improving, getting worse or staying the same
find out how well your osteoporosis medicine is working
