David Slovik, Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism, answeredThe National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends routine dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) testing for men starting at age 70. Younger men who have risk factors should also be tested. In the meantime, men can protect their bones by following the same lifestyle recommendations offered to women: engage in regular weight-bearing exercise, get adequate amounts of calcium and vitamin D, and avoid health habits known to deplete bone mass such as smoking and excessive alcohol use.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
