Treatment & Procedures

The amount of calcium you need to stay healthy changes over your lifetime. Your body's demand for calcium is greatest during childhood and adolescence, when your skeleton is growing rapidly, and during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Postmenopausal women and older men also need to consume more calcium. As you age, your body becomes less efficient at absorbing calcium, and you're more likely to take medications that interfere with calcium absorption.

The Department of Rheumatology provides the following treatments options:

  • Ultrasound and computerized tomography (CT) scanning to measure bone density.
  • Hormone therapy (HT), medicines and lifestyle changes
  • Physiotherapy and adapting the right posture.
