Bones play an important role in our body. They provide structure, protect our organs, and store calcium. As we get older, our body reabsorbs calcium and phosphate from our bones instead of keeping these minerals retained in our bones. This makes our bones weaker. When this process reaches a certain stage, it is called osteoporosis. A person often fractures a bone before even being aware of bone loss. The bone loss becomes serious by the time a fracture occurs. Apart from ageing there can be other reasons for decreasing bone health such as:
- Not eating enough high-calcium foods
- The body removes more calcium than usual in the urine
- Body does not absorb enough calcium from the foods we eat
- Habits such as drinking, smoking, etc.
You can escape from suffering osteoporosis and other bone related issues by having a bone mineral density checkup.
I have very good news for you.
The Golden Hospital has announced a free bone mineral density checkup camp at its hospital premises on Friday, 17th June from 9 AM to 1 PM for the first 100 persons.
Dr. Varun Aggarwal, Orthopedician at Golden hospital stated that the aim of organising the free BMD medical camp is to make people aware about their bone strength at an early age so that they take necessary steps to prevent osteoporosis and other bone-related issues.
This BMD test will be done with bone densitometry, an advanced machine that tests bone density with a simple non-invasive method.
Apart from BMD, some other free tests include:
- Uric acid
- Blood sugar
With 30% discount on rest of blood tests:
- Vitamin d 3 @rs 599
- Vitamin [email protected] rs 499
