Pre-Osteoporosis Condition: Osteopenia
My doctor`s nurse informed me that a recent bone density test showed a pre-osteoporosis condition. She said to take calcium but I have been taking 1200 mg per day for quite a few years. What is the medical term for this pre-osteoporosis condition and should it be treated?
See answer on osteopenia.
