Number Of Bones Broken

What Causes Broken Bones?

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:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "broken bones" as a symptom.  Here are five possibilities:
  • Calcium Need
  • Poor Musculoskeletal Health
  • Phosphorus Deficiency
  • Hyperparathyroidism
  • Osteoporosis

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
having had a small bowel resection
numb/burning/tingling extremities
constant thirst
low energy/stamina
afternoon coffee/sugar craving
being very skinny
brittle fingernails
significant loss of height
occasional confusion/disorientation
no dark leafy greens consumption
one loose tooth
morning stiffness without pain
... and more than 30 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of broken bones:
Cause Probability Status
Calcium Need 95% Confirm
Osteoporosis 23% Unlikely
Hyperparathyroidism 3% Ruled out
Phosphorus Deficiency 3% Ruled out
Poor Musculoskeletal Health 3% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Skeletal Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about number of bones broken:
Have you ever broken any bones?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Once
→ Twice
→ Three times
→ Four times or more
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of broken bones or history of many broken bones, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Phosphorus Deficiency

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.
