As part of National Osteoporosis Day in October we ran two DEXA screening days. One on Sat 24th October and, due to popular demand, another on Sat 31st October.
In all 16 patients took part and had their bone density measured. Of these patients 4 were found to be of normal range, 8 were found to be in Osteopaenic range (at risk of developing Osteoporosis), and 4 were found to have overt Osteoporosis. Those found to have Osteopaenia or Osteoporosis were asked to consult their GP. Certainly the 25% found to have Osteoporosis will now be able to get appropriate treatment for fracture prevention.
The DEXA screening days were such a success, we are going to offer them more regularly throughout the year.
If you are interested in future DEXA screening please let us know and we will add you to the list.
As part of National Osteoporosis Awareness day, Norwich Osteopathic Clinic is holding an osteoporosis screening day on Sat 24th October.
A registered radiologist will use a DEXA scanner to accurately measure bone density. You will receive printed results, and have them explained to you. Those shown to be at risk will be asked to consult their GP with a view to starting early treatment for fracture prevention. Appointments are £40, and take 30 minutes.
Who should have a DEXA scan......? In addition to age, the other major risk factor is declining hormone levels. This includes women with low oestrogen levels as a result of early menopause or hysterectomy, or men with low testosterone levels as a result of testicular problems. There is a hereditary risk for people with a family history of osteoporosis. And there are other more modifiable risk factors which include people on long-term oral corticosteroids (including asthma inhalers), smoking, high alcohol intake, and low physical inactivity, especially in those with a low body weight. If you are over 50 and have one or more of these risk factors you should probably get your bone health checked.
