Healthy Living: 20 Important Health Checkups for Everyone
Important Healthy Checkup # 6: Bone mineral test
This test is a must for every woman – says Dr. Sunesara. This test helps you diagnose your risk of developing bone problems like osteoporosis and arthritis. As bones become thinner as we age and due to consumption of less nutrient food, the calcium content in our bones decreases, which can lead to fractures and sever bone damage. To avoid fractures and a weakened skeletal structure, this test is a must even for men.
