  • Microscopic Breaks in Young Women Can Forecast Future Osteoporosis Diagnosis

There is little bone growth or development after a person reaches the mid-20s in age. The presence of bone fractures from repeated stress offers insight into future bone health problems, especially among young women. Measurement of bone-density can be important for young, at-risk women, but often does not occur because such measurements are traditionally performed only on older patients.

Young women who may be at risk of osteoporosis often show symptoms as early as the college years that can predict future problems. An examination of sites where small fractures take place from bones being subjected to repeated stress, which happen in activities such as running and gymnastics, show that bones often suffer significant and identifiable fractures at the microscopic level. These microscopic fractures appear to correlate with the status of bone health in young women. "At risk" patients can be determined by the identification of such stress fractures, which appear to indicate a strong risk of a future osteoporosis diagnosis. These "at risk" patients should undergo a thorough evaluation, so that appropriate osteoporosis prevention and treatment strategies can be implemented.
