Why is a bone aging consultation needed?
Osteoporosis or thin bones develops as we age. A fractured hip in an elderly woman has three possible outcomes: healing, nursing home or death.
Only one of these is acceptable. Osteoporotic fractures are a leading cause of dependency and disability. Osteoporosis is, unfortunately, a silent process. You don’t feel anything until you slip, fall and crack a bone. Then it hurts. Many factors lead to thin bones. Menopause and loss of estrogen are the most obvious. Other hormones such as testosterone and growth hormone are also needed for solid bones. Too much cortisol, thyroid hormone or parathyroid hormone can eat away your bones too. Vitamin D, calcium and magnesium are vital. Osteoporosis has also been associated with teenage pop drinking, eating disorders, poor diets and smoking.
