Is it time to have a bone density screening done?


Women over 65 are more likely to have problems with their bones. This is why many doctors recommend that you begin annual screenings for osteoporosis at 65. Screening should also be done for men by age 70.

The bone density test will tell you if your bone density is normal, low or high. This indicates if you are more susceptible to fractures and bone fragility. Low bone density does NOT mean that you will develop osteoporosis. If you lose bone, you are at greater risk of developing osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis was only detected in the past if you fractured a bone. However, by then, your bones may be very weak. The accuracy of calculating your chance of breaking bones is enhanced by a bone density test.

Freak in the Sheets sex toy tips

Tip No. 1:

While it’s tempting to purchase sex toys online I would suggest you go to Freak in the Sheets. At the very least, until you can discover what you are looking for and what brands you prefer, and the list goes on. My personal favorite is called Early to Bed in Edgewater.

Tip No. 2:

Start cheap. While the ones which are less expensive won’t last as long (if they’re cared for correctly) There’s nothing worse than spending a significant amount of money on a diamond double dog only to discover that you don’t like it. Do not spend too much.

Tip No. 3:

Begin small. It’s tempting to go to the Ron Jeremy dildo, as it appears tiny compared to the wine-sized dildo behind it. However, the general consensus is that eyes may be larger than our vaginas. It’s better to climb to the top of the scale particularly if you’re playing with anal toys.

The bone density test measures how much calcium and other minerals are contained in a bone segment using X-rays. The most common bones to be tested are the spine, hip, and forearm.

  • You and your doctor can benefit from a bone density test:
  • Before you break a bone, find out if your bones are weak.
  • You can predict your chances of breaking a bone in future
  • Check to see if your bone density has changed.
  • Learn how osteoporosis medicine works
  • After breaking a bone, let us know if you have osteoporosis.

If you experience a loss of height of more than 1/2 inch within a year, or if your height has fallen to 1 1/2 inches below your initial height, a bone density test might be required. If you have ever broken a bone, it is also worth being screened.

Please let your doctor know if there are any concerns.
