Bone Density Testing
Although bone issues usually surface at midlife, it's a good idea to start taking steps to promote optimal bone health regardless of your age. Bone is living tissue which continuously is absorbed and replaced.
When the creation of new bone does not keep pace with the removal of old bone, osteoporosis occurs. Osteoporosis is preventable and treatable. Ask your physician about a bone health assessment and screening to check family medical history and measure bone mass.
