Had a dexa that showed osteoporsis in hip . What test should i follow up on after this diag.? Should i be checking for the cause?
hi i have gone through your query.normally it occurs due to diietary deficiency and lack of excercise,nothing much to worry about. .i would suggest you to take oral drugs{ bisphosphonates,vit.D. and calcium supplements} with regular physical excercise for 6 month. Get dexa scan after 6 months. wish you good health.

hi thanks for healthcare magic At ur age, having back pain is very common. Mainly it happen due to muscular pain or due to osteoporosis that is weakness in bone. U should take calcium tablet daily alone with pain killer if needed. Consult a orthopedician for further query. U can go for physiotherapy for excessive pain and go DEXA scan to rule out bone weakness. thanks
 
I have just found out i have osteoporsis at age 42 in hip. What other test should i get to follow up on this?
The best test for osteoporosis is DEXA scan which measures the bone mineral density by a machine that uses low levels of X-rays to determine the proportion of mineral contained in your bones. During this painless test, you lie on a padded table as a scanner passes over your body. A bone density test makes it possible to know your risk of breaking bones before the fact. hope this helps.
