A very probable sign of Osteoporosis is a measured low bone mineral density. When the number is at -2.5 or less, this is very concerning.

Even still, if the number is slightly above, but close to -2.5, it could still mean that you’re rapidly losing bone density. While this alone doesn’t mean it’s Osteoporosis, it’s very important to address this to avoid future complications. You should regularly get a bone mineral density evaluation from your doctor if you fall into any of the highly-at-risk categories, or are experiencing any of the previously mentioned symptoms.

Knowing your bone mineral density will allow you to effectively manage the condition, and prevent further bone loss.
