The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) recommends that all women over 65 or of postmenopausal age with risk factors, as well as men over 70 talk to their doctors about undergoing a bone density test to diagnose osteoporosis. This painless, 15-minute test will help predict your risk of breaking a bone, and statistics show that women who have bone density scans have 35% fewer hip fractures than those who do not.
Many factors play a role in your risk for osteoporosis, including age, gender, lifestyle, medical history, family history and whether you take any medication or have medical conditions that can lead to bone loss.
