Understanding Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a silent disease defined by a decrease in bone mass resulting in an increased risk of fracture. A bone density scan (dexa) defines the T score and categorizes the need for treatment. More women are affected than men. Hip and spine fractures are complications if the disease is not treated. With appropriate tailored treatment for each individual, the risk of fracture can be significantly reduced.
