Dr. Lisa Pomranky Says . . .

Osteoporosis is a silent, progressive disease that weakens the bones. Women over the age of 65 and men over the age of 70 should be screened with a bone density test. A bone density exam is referred to as a DXA, which stands for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Your doctor may recommend this after a fracture occurs (depending on how the fracture was sustained) as some fractures occur at increased frequency in people with osteoporosis.
