Kayal Osteoporosis Center
Also called “brittle bone disease,” osteoporosis is a sneaky condition that presents with no initial symptoms. Most patients experience no pain prior to disease progression, and some may fracture a bone before they are diagnosed. As it advances, osteoporosis can cause severe pain, kyphosis (stooped posture), vertebral fractures and more. To identify and treat the disease or determine your risk, Kayal Osteoporosis Center physicians may recommend:
- Physical exam and thorough medical history
- Bone mineral density testing
- Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry testing (DEXA)
- Qualitative Computed Tomography (QCT)
- X-rays (to reveal small fractures)Laboratory testing
