Osteoporosis and Bone Density Testing

Prevent Osteoporosis with the help of our specialists at Lakeside Women’s Hospital in Oklahoma City. Osteoporosis, which means "porous bones," causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that even mild stresses like bending over, lifting a vacuum cleaner or coughing can cause a fracture. In most cases, bones weaken when you have low levels of calcium, phosphorus and other minerals in your bones.

A common result of osteoporosis is fractures — most of them in the spine, hip or wrist. Although it's often thought of as a women's disease, osteoporosis also affects many men. Aside from people who have osteoporosis, many more have low bone density.

It's never too late — or too early — to do something about osteoporosis. You can take steps to keep bones strong and healthy throughout life.
