Were you looking for information about Osteopenia? Ostopenia is a common misspelling of osteopenia.
Osteopenia is a bone disease that occurs when bone is lost faster than the body can replace it. This disease is a precursor of osteoporosis and is a milder form of it. If you are 65 or older, or if you are 60 to 64 years old and have certain risk factors, you should have a bone density test. This simple test can confirm a diagnosis of osteopenia or osteoporosis, predict your chances of bone fractures in the future, and determine your rate of bone loss.
