The bone density measurementis a study, which allows detecting the early stages of osteoporosis in order to start treatment on time and avoid bone fractures. Bone density is measured from the fingertips using ultrasonic methods. This method is very accurate and gives a clear perception of bone mineralisation. Osteoporosis commonly starts from the vertebral column and since fingers have the most similar bone structure to the vertebral column, the data collected through them is sufficiently informative and accurate. Bone density measurement is advisable for people in the risk group: females over 50 years, people with a risky lifestyle (smoking, alcohol and consumption of coffee and carbonated beverages), people with inactive lifestyle, low consumption of milk-based products (lactose intolerance). If you are or have been subjected to the following illnesses: rheumatic arthritis, liver and kidney diseases, lung diseases, inflammatory intestinal diseases. If you have used or are using the following medications: glycocorticosteroids (prednisolone).
