Osteoporosis testing is a type of procedure that allows physicians/rheumatologists to examine bone density in the outpatient clinic. Osteoporosis is a disease identified by thinning and deterioration of bone tissue with loss of calcification and density. Osteoporosis can increase over time. This can cause the bone to become brittle and increasingly porous. Women and older adults are more at risk of being affected by osteoporosis. Heredity, low body weight, and chronic use of certain medications (steroids) may also risk factors for the disease. Lifting, bending, bumping, sneezing can also cause a bone to break in people affected by osteoporosis. Osteoporosis testing helps to estimate the density of bones and the chances of breaking a bone. Osteoporosis testing check the bone density, physicians usually refer to bone densitometer. Bone loss can occur because of different disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, hyperparathyroidism, chronic kidney disease, multiple myeloma or drugs such as anti-epileptics and glucocorticoids.
