Researchers find 28% of 35- to 50-year-old men studied are at-risk for osteoporosis

The study analyzed the bone mineral density of 173 adults between 35 and 50 years old. Participants were scanned at the femoral hip and lumbar spine, using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, which is proven to be precise, while exposing patients to a minimal dose of radiation. Findings indicate more middle-aged adults should be scanned to understand their risk and establish a baseline for monitoring.
