3. Case Study: Aging and Bone Density

Introduction

A 47-year old female, Lucia, has been experiencing osteopenia for the last decade. Therefore, she regularly visits her doctor for bone mineral density (BMD) tests. During her most recent visit, Lucia?s physician explains that her osteopenia may develop into osteoporosis. To mitigate risks of developing osteoporosis, Lucia?s physician suggests hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The physician explains that HRT is not for everyone; it has potential side effects, such as increased risk of breast cancer.

Lucia is apprehensive of beginning HRT because she has a large family history of developing breast cancer and her physician agrees that all alternatives should be explored that could help prevent osteoporosis.
