Osteoporosis Orientation Day

The FLS center in El Hadara University Hospital organized an Osteoporosis Orientation Day. Where an educational session was given to the attendees regarding the nature of the disease, methods of prevention and treatment. Additionally, the role of healthy diet and exercise to promote bone and muscle health was emphasised. All participants were screened by US densitometry, and the fracture risk was calculated by the FRAX tool. Those with moderate to high risk of fracture were advised to do DXA scan and to be followed up. Calcium and vitamin D were prescribed and small bottles of milk were given to them. On this day we screened 72 patients older than 50 years.
