Elderly Will Have Osteoporosis; Don't Advocate Bone Density Determination

A bone density test determines if you have osteoporosis — a disorder characterized by bones that are more fragile and more likely to break. The test uses X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone. I don't advocate the determination of bone density anymore, because the elderly will definitely have osteoporosis, and with the increase of age, the degree of osteoporosis will definitely become more and more serious, and the risk of fracture is bound to get bigger. There is a formula: The risk of fracture external damage force/ bone density. The elderly are prone to fractures because the denominator value (bone density) is getting smaller and smaller, so the risk of fractures will definitely increase. Therefore, the most important measure for the elderly to prevent fractures is to do everything possible to prevent accidental injuries. How to reduce accidental injuries? There are the seven characters of the so-called secret that
