Osteoporosis Care at South Texas Fracture Prevention Clinic
Our goal is to keep you as independent as possible and increase your quality of life. After it is determined you have osteoporosis, we come up with a personalized plan to reduce risk of fracture. Extensive lab work will be ordered to rule out and treat secondary causes and help us decide on pharmaceutical treatment. Extensive communication regarding mechanism of action, route of administration, possible side effects and risks are covered. A recommendation will be given, but acknowledgment that this is your body, and your choice is paramount. Nutrition counseling and guidance on physical activity is included.
