If bone loss is a potential threat, the medical recourse is to submit oneself to a bone mineral density (BMD) test to find out the true state of the bones at that point in time. The findings from the test expressed as T-score and Z-score are significant because they work as the backbone of the treatment program to manage the medical case of the patient. The problem lies now on the interpretation of these bone density T-score and Z-score.
