Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the condition of weak bones commonly associated with women over 50. However, osteopenia, the beginning of osteoporosis can begin at any age due to genetics, lifestyle choices and calcium, magnesium, vitamin K and vitamin D deficiencies.

Testing for the density of bones is done with a small x-ray called a DEXA scan taken at the hip and spine. Dexa scans are generally only repeated every two years because they can't measure the small changes that might show up sooner.

Instead of waiting two years to gauge whether a treatment is adequate Dr. Kowalsky uses a convenient urine test for pyridinium crosslinks to see if the bone loss has slowed down.

Keeping patients of all ages on track with natural bone building strategies enables them to rebuild strong bones and reduce the risk of fractures without harmful drugs.
