(Reduced density of bones with the presence of porosities in the bone mass, reducing the overall strength of the bones and making them fragile and weak and prone to fractures)
Osteoporosis could be a result of ageing, poor nutrition, and the side effect of cancer therapy or drugs like steroids or underlying chronic diseases like diabetes or lifestyle related factors like being an alcoholic or a smoker.
(A precursor to osteoporosis, wherein the bone density begins to reduce, but frank osteoporosis has not yet set in. Untreated and unattended osteopenia can progress to osteoporosis)
(Inflammation of the joints and pain of the joints caused either due to mechanical wear and tear [osteoarthritis] or due to rheumatoid disorders [rheumatoid arthritis]) or obesity
Osteoporosis has become so widespread all over the world that the International Osteoporosis Foundation has put forth a really eye-opening and alarming projection for all of us!!
The situation is equally grim for arthritis as well.
By the time, you actually start experiencing pain and inflammation of your bones and joints, it’s too late and the disease has already progressed to a large extent. Hence, we recommend you to pre-empt this and keep getting bone and joint check-ups done at regular intervals (at least twice a year). This will help detect any disorders of the bone and joint, at an early stage and at a stage when they are reversible.
At Suburban Diagnostics, we offer a range of tests for this purpose, including the Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) test. Over and above this are blood tests to check the health of your bones and joints like uric acid, calcium, phosphorus, alkaline phosphatase, total proteins, albumin, globulin, A : G ratio, ANA, RA, CCP-Ab, PTH, Vitamin D and protein electrophoresis.
