Bone Health Clinic

at Murphy Wainer

Osteoporosis or thinning of the bones affects over 10 million Americans. It is a silent disease, meaning most patients don’t have any symptoms — until they break a bone. People with osteoporosis are at high risk for breaking bones and often have trouble healing bone injuries.

RISK FACTORS FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Female over age 65 Male over age 70 Post-menopausal or early menopause Broken bone over age 50 History of multiple broken bones or breaking a bone without trauma Family history of osteoporosis, hip fracture or fragility fracture Ethnicity: Caucasians and Asians have the highest risk Diet low in calcium and vitamin D History of Prednisone use or other steroids Smoking Alcohol intake of more than 1-2 drinks/day
Please bring an updated medication list with you to your appointment If you have had a Bone Density test or recent Vitamin D test, bring those as well
