Mangaluru: A person cannot see or feel their bones getting thinner. Many people do not even know that they have thin bones until a bone breaks (fractures). A broken bone can interfere with a person’s daily activities and can have serious consequences. It is important for a person to know whether they have this silent disease so that they can take steps to prevent a fracture and protect their ability to lead an independent, active lifestyle.
A BMD test can Measure the density of bone, detect osteoporosis before a fracture occurs, help to predict the chances of fracture in the future, monitor the effectiveness of treatments for osteoporosis, etc. Free BMD screening Camp is scheduled on 9 December, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm at Department of Orthopedics KMC Hospital, Attavar.
