Broken bones can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'troubling' to 'serious'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose broken bones, we could:
|Poor Musculoskeletal Health||4%||Ruled out|
|Calcium Need||1%||Ruled out|
Have you ever broken any bones?
Possible responses:→ No / don't know
→ Three times
→ Four times or more
Patients may have thinning of the bones without symptoms, but with increased risk of fractures.
