Why is Dexa Scan prescribed?
As a person ages, the strength of the bones or the density of bones goes down. If your doctor suspects that your bone mass is reducing or you show symptoms of bone loss, this test may be prescribed. This is also prescribed as a precautionary check if you are on certain medications that are known to impact bone mass. For example, former cancer patients who are on lifelong medication may be prescribed this test annually.
In your dexa scan report, your bone density will be compared with the standard density expected of someone of your age and gender. Depending on the report, you may be classified as having osteopenia or osteoporosis.
What are the reasons for bone weakness?
While age is a factor in reduction of bone density, many times lack of calcium, phosphorus or vitamin D in the diet (see symptoms of vitamin D deficiency here) also causes bone weakness. Lack of exercise is also a contributor to loss of bone mass.
