As indicated by many authors Asian region there is emerging osteoporosis epidemic. T-scores in BMD are used to help diagnose normal bone mass, osteopenia and osteoporosis. A one day on BMD check was carried out in a multicenter hospital using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). 55 subjects voluntarily entered the "fight and prevent osteoporosis" camp. The mean BMD of 55 subjects were screened the mean was 1.94 ±1.04, normal was in the range of 0.65±0.22 in 12 subjects; osteopenic range was… CONTINUE READING
