Bone Health Assessment

If you are concerned about your bone density, take this risk assessment survey.

  1. Are you a female over 65 AND have never had a bone density/DXA scan?
  2. Are you a male over 70 years old AND have never had a bone density/DXA scan?
  3. Have you ever broken a bone from a minor fall after the age of 50?
  4. Do you have a family history of osteoporosis?
  5. Do you smoke cigarettes or use any nicotine?
  6. Do you drink three or more alcoholic drinks daily?
  7. Do you have any of the following medical conditions: diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, gastrointestinal diseases, anorexia nervosa or a history of gastric bypass surgery?
  8. Have you used any of the following medications long-term (more than 3 months): steroids, acid reflux/GERD medications, antidepressants medications, antiseizure medications or cancer medications to treat breast cancer or prostate cancer?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, a bone health evaluation is recommended to assess for osteoporosis and risk for a fragility fracture.
