Podcast: Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention

In this episode of Women's Health Wednesday series of Back to Health, Panagiota Andreopoulou, M.D. discusses what women need to know about osteoporosis. She goes over how the drop in estrogen levels for older women can lead to a period of accelerated bone loss, which increases risk for the “brittle bone disease." Although there is no cure for osteoporosis, Dr. Andreopoulou highlights the ways to screen, diagnose and manage the condition.
