OSTEOPOROSIS the silent disease – Are you at risk?

Osteoporosis is a condition which weakens bones making them fragile and more likely to break.

There are usually no warnings you have developed osteoporosis and it is often diagnosed only when a bone is fractured after even a minor fall.


We use Quantative Ultrasound (QUS) to show bone density at the heel which is a good indicator of general bone density in the body.

The National Osteoporosis Society says that ‘QUS has been demonstrated to show predictive value for any fracture in women in their peri-menopausal years and of Colles fracture in women in their early post-menopausal years’.

You will be provided with a full report of your results showing your T-score and Z-score together with any recommendations appropriate for you.

We will help with advice on lifestyle, diet and supplementation to help increase your bone density.

We will refer you to your GP for a full body DXA scan if your results indicate low scores.
