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||5%||Ruled out|
|Calcium Need||3%||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.
Phosphorus is just as important as calcium for building strong bones. If you suffer broken bones, this may indicate bone weakness that is due to mineral deficiencies.
A history of many broken bones can indicate problems such as Osteoporosis and Osteogenesis Imperfecta. These disorders directly impact the health of the bones and will therefore affect musculoskeletal health.
