Bone Mineral Density (BMD) is an indicator of minerals contained in your bones, osteoporosis risk and fracture risk. In this module you’ll be taken through understanding the importance of our skeleton and the functions it performs in the body. This is an integral part to understanding the Bone Mineral Density report. We’ll investigate what exactly bone is, and what it does in the body. You’ll also receive insights as to the genetic implications of bone in the body, as well as what actions we can take regarding our bone health.
