1/x I’ll be teaching on #osteoporosis diagnosis and management tomorrow to future physicians @MUCOM_Indy. A few thoughts... #WorldOsteoporosisDay
2/x For most people #osteoporosis is a silent disease until a fracture disrupts and potentially changes their life. Many never regain full mobility or independence. Just 1 fragility fracture raises risk of a second fracture and increases risk of mortality. #WorldOsteoporosisDay
3/x For other #osteoporosis patients, fear of fracture causes elevated anxiety and decreases their well-being. The anxiety may cause patients to self-limit their physical activity and actually increase fall risk and fracture risk. #WorldOsteoporosisDay

When a doctor says “why do you need an #EhlersDanlos diagnosis, there’s no cure.” It demonstrates a lack of understanding of medicine, science and patient self-advocacy. I am NOT claiming these tweets are the best or most current sources, nor is the list of reasons complete 1/11
For most with #EDS the extreme relief of being told “it’s not all in your head, it’s real and there are others like you” is reason enough. So many with EDS feel alone. Diagnosing someone with conversion disorder instead , is it’s own problem! 2/11 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
