Our bones get thinner as we get older. Osteoporosis is a common problem that is faced by many, especially women in the post menopausal age group.
In this presentation, Dr Vivek Baliga discusses a simple test that helps determine the thickness of bones and whether they are prone to fracturing.
Take a look at the presentation below.
As is very evident from the presentation, bone thickness can be affected due to a number of reasons. Dr Vivek Baliga clearly explains what can be done to keep the bones healthy. In addition to this, he also talks about how a bone mineral density test is done and how useful it is in determining whether the bones are of normal thickness or whether they are thin and weak.
Bone fractures can be very painful, and Dr Vivek clearly describes how the BMD test can help detect bone thinning early. This will help you start treatment sooner rather than later.
