It’s worth getting a bone-density test if you’re older or have other risk factors for weak bones, because without it the first sign of osteoporosis is usually a broken bone. But if you’re not at higher risk, you should think twice about the test. http://www.choosingwisely.org/doctor-patient-lists/bone-density-tests/

What do you think about this? Have you been tested? If you got a diagnosis of osteopenia, were drugs prescribed?
