Were you looking for information about Osteopenia? Osteopina is a common misspelling of osteopenia.
Osteopenia is a type of bone disease that occurs when the body is unable to replace bone mass faster than it is lost. This disease is similar to osteoporosis, but it is a milder form of osteoporosis. However, people who have osteopenia are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis. If you are 65 or older, or 60 to 64 and have certain risk factors, you should have a bone density test. This simple test can determine your rate of bone loss and predict your chances of bone fractures in the future, among other things.
