Osteoporosis Questionare

Osteoporosis is a progressive bone thinning disease that can lead to serious fractures of the hip, spine and wrist. It is a complex disease and not all causes are known. However, when certain risk factors are present, your likelihood of developing osteoporosis is significantly increased. It is known that certain lifestyle choices (over which one does have control) can contribute to depletion of minerals from your bones. Your answers to the following questions can help to determine your risk for developing osteoporosis:


Are you of either Caucasian or Asian in race?


Do you have a small, thin frame?


Has a female member of your family broken a bone as an adult?


Are you a postmenopausal woman?


Have you had either an early natural menopause or a surgically induced menopause?


Have you been taking high or prolonged doses of thyroid medication or any cortison-like, drugs for asthma, arthritis or other diseases?


Is your diet low in dairy products and other sources of calcium?


Are you physically inactive or guilty of not exercising regularly?


Do you smoke?


Do you consume alchohol and/or caffeine on a regular basis?

The more times you answered "YES" to the above questions, the greater your risk for developing osteoporosis. The disease does not wait until you are "old" to start. Many people, particularly females, have already begun to lose bone mass as early as their twenties.
