Patients With Normal Bone Density Can Delay Retests, Study Suggests

The inkling is to reduce the risk of rare but serious side effects, including unusual thighbone fractures and wasting of bone in the jaw. A risk calculator, FRAX, can help determine whether treatment is recommended. It assesses a aggregate of risk factors:

I think I'm healthy but my BMI says I'm overweight

I think I'm healthy but my BMI says I'm overweight BMI values less than 18.5 are considered underweight and expand a person's risk for conditions such as osteoporosis, nutrient deficiencies and eating disorders.

New Genetic Tool to Predict Osteoporosis, Fracture

, “I was interested in finding genetic markers to help athletes and military personnel avoid injuries, such as stress fracture. For athletes and military personnel, injuries affect not only their health but also their competitive success and military effectiveness. Getting a stress fracture shortly before the Olympics or the playoffs can eliminate an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

He added, “Stress fractures are commonplace in athletes due to the harsh rigors of physical training and overuse. The goal is to develop a genetic test that could alert the player and his/her trainer about injury risk in the preseason, so that preventative steps could be taken to reduce the risk of injury.”

According to Kim, the genetic algorithm for bone mineral density could also be used as a predictor of osteoporosis. He explained that genetic testing is quite common and a website could be set up to calculate the bone mineral density score for people with access to their genome data through participation in direct-to-consumer testing companies such as 23andme or Ancestry.com. And then the results can be confirmed by their doctor.
