Looking for a Bone Doctor in Bangkok? VitalLife Has the Specialists You Need
One in two women and as many as one in four men will break a bone in their advanced years as a result of osteoporosis, and half of all adults over the age of 50 are at risk of breaking bones due to low bone density. Osteoporosis, a bone disease that makes your bones weak and more likely to break, is much more common than you might think and should be a real concern for people as they age. Even if you are still feeling spry, you have a good chance of developing this damaging bone disease, and it is worth working with the experienced VitalLife bone doctor in Bangkok to prevent it from developing – or worsening if you already have low bone density.
Osteopenia Doctor in Bangkok
Osteopenia refers to the beginning stages of osteoporosis. Having osteopenia means that the density in your bones is not as high as it should be, so your risk of suffering from a break or fracture are elevated and interventions are recommended. Simply put, at this stage, the mineral content in your bones is deteriorating faster than your body can replenish it. Some people are genetically prone to osteopenia, and later osteoporosis, but aging women are in the highest risk category. Genetic predisposition, hormones, lifestyle and diet can also play a role in how strong or weak your bones are. If you are in a higher risk category for having osteopenia or developing osteoporosis, it is worth working with a trained osteopenia doctor in Bangkok to prevent the disease from worsening and keep your bones healthy.
You can naturally prevent osteopenia from worsening by refraining from excessive alcohol intake and refrain from smoking. You can also support your bone health by eating a balanced diet, engaging in regular weight-bearing exercises, and taking important nutritional supplements, including calcium and vitamin D. The VitalLife bone doctor in Bangkok can help you make lifestyle and diet changes to support your bones and keep them healthy.
Osteoporosis Doctor in Bangkok
As your bones weaken further, you may develop osteoporosis. This means that your bone density is low enough that breakage or fracture is imminent if it has not already happened. A fracture of the wrist or hip may occur during a simple fall or a small fracture of the back may occur without a known incident. About 50% of all people are at risk for developing osteoporosis in their lifetime.
The only sure way to know how dense your bones are is to take a non-invasive and painless DXA scan. This is a high-caliber, extremely precise type of X-ray that will measure your bone density and give us an idea of how much bone loss you have experienced. We will scan high-risk areas of your body, such as your wrists, hips and spine, that will be the most likely to break if your bone density it too low.
If we find that your bone density is too low, our osteoporosis doctor in Bangkok can treat the disease to help you prevent your bones from breaking.
