Over their lifetime, many women are at risk for developing osteoporosis and other bone conditions and diseases.  At Doctors Hospital of Manteca, we know that early detection and treatment is essential for continuing an active life.

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become weak and brittle. Often, it is not detected until you fracture a bone. The risk of developing osteoporosis can be linked to many factors, including the use of certain medications, past family history, eating disorders and lifestyle choices such as smoking or drinking. Body type — small and thin, for example — can also be a factor. White and Asian women are most at risk. But early detection and the right treatment plan can help keep your bones healthy.

Bone density testing

A bone density test can tell you and your doctor a lot about your current bone health. It’s a quick and comfortable in-office procedure. If it’s determined that you have osteoporosis, you will receive a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs. If you do not have osteoporosis, your doctor can give you tips on preventing it , as well as information on how to maintain good bone health.
