Is your bone density up to standard? A formula test will tell you


There are 206 bones in the human body, which are the systems that support the human body to stand, walk, live, etc., and let life move. Strong bones can effectively resist the damage of various external factors that people suffer, but when encountering osteoporosis, no matter how hard the bones are, they will be as soft as "rotten wood".


Bone Health Survey

Did your skeleton pass?

According to a survey by the International Osteoporosis Foundation, an osteoporotic fracture occurs every 3 seconds in the world. At present, the prevalence of osteoporosis in women over the age of 50 is about 1/3, and that of men is about 1/5. It is estimated that in the next 30 years, osteoporosis will account for more than half of all fracture cases.

The level of bone health of Chinese people is also worrying, and there is a trend of younger people. The 2015 "China Bone Density Survey Report" showed that half of the residents over the age of 50 had abnormal bone mass, and the incidence of osteoporosis increased from 1% to 11% after the age of 35.

Not only that, China's first bone index report stated that the average bone health score of Chinese people did not "pass", and more than 30% of Chinese people's bone index did not meet the standard.

A professor of basic nursing at Tottori University School of Medicine in Japan has given a set of calculation formulas that can be used to estimate the risk of osteoporosis by using one's own weight and age. Specific algorithm:

(weight - age) × 0.2

• If the result is less than -4, the risk is high;

• The result is between -4~-1, which is a moderate risk;

• For results greater than -1, the risk is small.

For example, if a person weighs 45 kg and is 70 years old, his risk level is (45-70)×0.2=-5, indicating that the risk of osteoporosis is high. The lower the body weight, the higher the risk of osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a systemic bone disease characterized by low bone mass, destruction of bone microarchitecture, increased bone fragility, and susceptibility to fracture. The World Health Organization has listed it as the second most serious disease after cardiovascular disease. Diseases that endanger human health.

Osteoporosis has been called a silent epidemic precisely because of three characteristics.


Osteoporosis has no symptoms most of the time, so it is called a "silent epidemic" in medicine. The elderly only pay attention to osteoporosis when the bone loss reaches a relatively serious level, such as low back pain, shortened height, or even fractures.

Hazard 1: cause fracture

Fractures can be caused by slight external force, such as rib fractures can occur when coughing. Fractures in the elderly can cause or aggravate cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications, lead to pulmonary infection and other complications, and even endanger life, with a mortality rate of 10%-20%.

Hazard 2: bone pain

Severe bone pain can affect the daily life, diet and sleep of the elderly, often making the patient's life irregular and premature tooth loss. About 60% of osteoporosis patients experience varying degrees of bone pain.

Hazard 3: hunchback

The height of a 65-year-old can be shortened by 4 cm, and that of a 75-year-old can be shortened by 9 cm.

Although everyone is familiar with osteoporosis, there are still very few people who can really pay attention to it and actively prevent it.

Osteoporosis does not have any symptoms in the early stage of the onset, and patients do not feel pain and discomfort, and it is often only after fractures occur that they can be noticed.

The pathological changes of osteoporosis are irreversible, that is to say, once a person suffers from osteoporosis, it is difficult to cure it. Therefore prevention is more important than cure.

The importance of regular bone density checks is obvious. Doctors will conduct fracture risk assessment and risk factor intervention on the examinee based on the examination results to help them delay or prevent the occurrence of osteoporosis, thereby reducing the risk of fractures in the examinee.

Using Pinyuan Bone densitometry to measuring Bone mineral density. They with High measurement accuracy and good repeatability.,Pinyuan Bone densitometer  is  for measuring the bone density or bone strength of the People's radius and tibia. It is for Preventing osteoporosis.It is used to measure the human bone condition of adults/children of all ages,And reflect the bone mineral density of the whole body, the detection process is non-invasive to the human body, and is suitable for the screening of bone mineral density of all people.




The ratio of men to women with osteoporosis is 3:7. The main reason is that postmenopausal ovarian function declines. When estrogen suddenly decreases, it will also accelerate bone loss and aggravate the symptoms of osteoporosis.

"Grows with age"

The prevalence of osteoporosis increases with age. Studies have shown that the prevalence rate of people aged 50-59 is 10%, that of people aged 60-69 is 46%, and that of people aged 70-79 reaches 54%.
