How do I know if I have osteoporosis?

If there are no symptoms or outward signs of osteoporosis, how do I know if I have osteoporosis?

Broken Bone

Having a fracture if you are a postmenopausal woman or an adult over the age of 50 may indicate you have osteoporosis.

Bone Density Scan

However, it’s better to find out before any broken bones happen. That’s the role of having a bone density test to identify osteoporosis. If you are diagnosed with osteoporosis, you can be proactive to lower your risk the future fracture. It’s better to know than not to know.
