  • A medical workup to diagnose osteoporosis will include a complete medical history, x rays, and urine and blood tests. The doctor may also order a BMD (bone mineral density) test.[news-medical.net]
  • Screening at-risk populations is essential (see Workup).[emedicine.medscape.com]
Magnesium Increased
  • Urinary excretion of calcium and magnesium increased significantly. The findings indicate that treatment with 1alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol may be useful in osteoporosis due to aging or following corticosteroid administration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
