As more information comes to light about Osteoporosis, it seems that many dancers may be at a higher risk than the average person.
Research is now showing that women lose up to 25% of their bone density in the first decade after menopause. Many sources are now suggesting that women get a baseline bone density report done right after menopause instead of waiting until 60 or 65.
Males generally are not screened until they are 80 unless other risk factors are present.
