BeamMed: Poor Bone Health May Start In Adolescence
Bone health in the adolescent years is as significant as in adulthood. However, most of the symptoms and devastating consequences are often identified later in the adulthood years. Considering bone health during adolescence is important due to the disease appearing in some cases during adolescence.
When an adolescent fractures a bone, a suspicion for poor bone health should be raised. It’s challenging at this age to determine which adolescent is manifesting earlier signs of skeletal pathology because is common in this age group to get fractures. For example, isolated fractures involving the wrist or ankle is less likely to cause concern for poor bone health.
However, those involving fractures such as the hip or spine should trigger a major concern and further evaluation for a bone pathology. Similarly, low-impact fractures like the femur bones may signal poor bone health as well.
Identifying adolescents with low bone density and frequent history of bone fractures as early as possible is advisable to improve their bone mass before their full skeletal growth.
