How to Find Out Your Bone Density Central Islip NY

If you have even broken a bone, then you know the pain that is involved. Perhaps your break was so bad that you had to have surgery on it to make sure the bone could successfully repair itself. Then, of course, there was the cast that you had to wear afterwards.

If you have even broken a bone, then you know the pain that is involved. Perhaps your break was so bad that you had to have surgery on it to make sure the bone could successfully repair itself. Then, of course, there was the cast that you had to wear afterwards.

With all of the effort needed to repair a broken bone, it is best for people (especially women) to have a bone density check done to see whether they are at risk for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a calcium deficiency that affects women starting when they are premenopausal. Thus, women in this category are the ideal candidates for a bone density check.

Women just entering into menopause experience a significant amount of hormonal changes, and these changes often result in calcium deficiencies. When a woman is younger, she has an added amount of calcium to fortify her bones in case of pregnancy. A menopausal woman no longer can become pregnant, so the calcium levels deplete.

A bone density check is non-invasive, and basically just involves a more intense form of an x-ray done on the patient. In total, the bone density check should take no more than a half hour. Special attention will most likely be placed on the lower half of the body. If the woman in question has sustained any previous bone breaks, that area will also be focused on. So, if you are a woman who is beginning menopause, of even if you are past menopause, make sure you have your bones checked to make sure you're getting enough calcium!
