The bone densitometry treatment is the most effective treatment that allows your doctor to evaluate your bone mass from the bone density results and scheme out a suitable treatment plan to reverse the effects of osteoporosis. Your endocrinologist may strongly recommend the treatment for you if you have recently attained menopause but you are not taking estrogen supplements, if you have a medical history of fractures in hip or spine, if you are taller than 5 feet 7 inches and if you are underweight. The bone density results are also recommended for men who are experiencing loss of bone density and bone mass. There are some medications which are known to trigger osteoporosis such as ant-seizure medicines, corticosteroids and some barbiturates and if you are taking any of them, then also your endocrinologist may ask you to undergo the bone densitometry treatment. It is also advisable for people suffering from type 1 or insulin dependent diabetes, liver ailments, kidney disease and have high bone turnover. Hyperthyroidism, parathyroid conditions and past history of any fractures also make an individual susceptible to having low bone density. It is an easy and quick process and there is no need to take any additional preparation for the treatment. You can eat your regular diet but it is advised not to take any calcium supplements at least 24 hours before the bone densitometry treatment in order to get desired results.
