October is Osteoporosis Prevention Month

October 10, 2017

Did you know that osteoporosis can occur in both men and women and at any age, but is most common in older women. An estimated 8.1 million Filipinos have osteoporosis and many are unaware of the disease until fractures appear.

A bone mineral density test is the best way to check your bone health.

This test can:

• diagnose osteoporosis and tell you whether you are likely to break a bone.

• check bone strength

• see if treatments are making the bones stronger.

To know more about bone densitometry, contact our BMD Unit today at (02) 727 0001 local 4001.
