Post-menopausal women who have normal bone density don’t need another bone mass density (BMD) test until they’re 65, according to a new study. The research, based on the Women’s Health Initiative, looked at 4,068 menopausal women age 50 to 64 who had a BMD test and didn’t have any osteoporosis-related fractures. They were not taking hormones or calcium and vitamin D supplements during the trial.
