Symptoms

Osteopenia is often referred to as a ‘silent disease’ because it does not typically cause any symptoms. In most cases, it is not until a bone fracture occurs that the condition is diagnosed. However, some individuals may experience symptoms such as back pain, loss of height over time, and a stooped posture. It is important to be aware of these potential symptoms and seek medical attention if they occur.

In addition to these symptoms, individuals with osteopenia may also experience increased frequency of bone fractures, particularly in the hip, spine, and wrist. It is important to discuss any concerns with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of action for managing and treating osteopenia.
