Brief Answer: Decreased density of bone Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. Osteopenia means decreased density of bone, which leads to bone weakening and an increased risk of breaking a bone (fracture). To overcome this take an adequate daily intake of calcium and vitamin D. If dietary intake is not adequate, then supplements may be prescribed. Lifestyle modifications are an important part of the prevention and treatment. These lifestyle changes include weight-bearing exercise (for example, walking or lifting weights). I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
