Kayal Osteoporosis Center
Once you’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis, the industry-leading physicians at Kayal Osteoporosis Center will develop a treatment and management plan. Osteoporosis patients should also undergo regular exams to (1) prevent disease-related fractures, (2) evaluate disease progression, and (3) assessing treatment success.
Monitoring osteoporosis may consist of the following:
- Follow-up bone density testing. Regular tests provide helpful data for your NJ osteoporosis team.
- Managing medications. Many osteoporosis patients take medication to slow bone density loss, and Kayal Osteoporosis Center can recommend effective, low-side-effect medications that reduce both disease advancement and fracture potential.
- Hormone therapy. In some cases, osteoporosis is the result of hormonal imbalances. Your osteoporosis specialist may recommend hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to reduce symptoms and build bone density.
- Fall protection. Reducing fall risk is critical to osteoporosis management, since a fall can cause nagging or devastating fractures. Strengthening the core, supporting oneself on stairs, wearing stable footwear and keeping home clutter to a minimum can keep you safe—and on your feet.
If you are a patient who has developed osteopenia or osteoporosis, the experts at Kayal Osteoporosis Center can help.
