Health Concerns

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease associated with weak, low-density or ‘porous’ bones. The disease may lead to bone fractures, resulting in limited mobility and other complications. While it is very prevalent in women above 50, it also affects men of similar age. Adequate Calcium and Vitamin D intake, as well as a healthy diet and physical activity help prevent the disease. As there are no immediate symptoms of weakening bones, adults above 50 years should monitor their bone health.

What can be done?

Bone Mineral Densitometry is a non-invasive X-Ray scan, assessing bone mineral density and body mass composition, used to screen for osteoporosis.
