Our body is in continuous need for phosphate and calcium in order to make as well as keep the bones healthy. This is because our body reabsorbs the bones which are already there and create the new ones all through the life which leads to the complete replacement of the skeleton after around 10 years. It is important to keep a good balance of the old and the new ones to make them stay healthy and strong. But loss of bone mass when the absorption of old bones is more than creation of new ones. Sometimes loss of bone density occurs without any particular cause but sometimes the problem of bone loss and thin bones run through family history. In general it is seen that older women are more susceptible to this problem and it is important to have a bone densitometry treatment to check the condition of bones after regular intervals. Our body tends to absorb the minerals and calcium from the bones with aging. This makes the bones fragile and they can break even without an injury. After reaching a particular stage, the doctors would call it an instance of osteoporosis. In most instances, it has been observed that a person would have a fracture in the bones even before they have the slightest hint about the loss of bone density. The bone density results would help your endocrinologist to determine the treatment plan suitable for you on the basis of your age, hormone condition, lifestyle and medication.
