Osteopenia

Osteopenia is a condition where bone density is low, but not as low as in osteoporosis. People with osteopenia have an increased chance of breaking bones and some but not all will develop osteoporosis. They should consult a physician to determine whether diet and lifestyle changes may be enough to prevent further weakening of the bones, or whether prescription medication is required.
