A Bone Density Screening is used to estimate the density of your bones and your chances of breaking a bone. More importantly, it is the only test that can detect early stages of osteoporosis, a serious bone disease in which the body loses too much bone or makes too little bone. With osteoporosis, bones may become fragile, leading to an increased risk of fractures of the wrist, forearm, ribs, spine, feet and toes, and hip. In severe cases, a minor occurrence like a sneeze can also cause bones to fracture. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, approximately 54 million people in the United States either already have osteoporosis or are at risk due to low bone mass. Osteoporosis can occur in both men and women and at any age, but it is most common in older women.
Many risk factors can lead to bone loss and osteoporosis. Some of these risk factors are controllable while others are not. Risk factors that cannot be controlled include:
Other risk factors include:
Osteoporosis is sometimes called the “silent disease” because symptoms may not appear until a fracture happens. This makes prevention efforts crucial at an early age. To help keep strong bones, it is important to eat a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, exercise regularly, and refrain from drinking alcohol in excess or smoking. The Clifton Health Department encourages the community to incorporate these healthy habits and to register for this screening to reduce the risk of future osteoporosis diagnosis.
The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.
