Were you looking for information about Osteopenia? Osteopena is a common misspelling of osteopenia.
As a bone disease, osteopenia occurs when the bone is lost faster than the body can replace it. It is a milder form of osteoporosis and is also a precursor of osteoporosis. A healthcare provider can diagnose osteopenia using a bone density test. This test can also predict your chances of bone fractures in the future and determine your rate of bone loss. If you are age 65 or older, you should get a bone density test.
