Loss of bone density is a serious problem that worsens as a woman ages. Undetected and untreated, it can lead to a condition known as osteoporosis, which can make you more vulnerable to dangerous falls and broken bones.
At Saint Thomas Health, we have the experts and medical technologies to help keep your bones strong and healthy. Through a simple bone density test (and other tests as needed), we can evaluate your bone strength and provide a variety of treatments, including medications, hormone replacement therapy, exercise, diet and lifestyle changes.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends routine bone density screening for women age 65 or older or for women beginning at 60 with increased risk of osteoporosis. The action you take now could make a dramatic difference in your quality of life. Call (615) 284-PINK (7465) to learn how you can prevent osteoporosis from limiting your quality of life.
