A 43-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis, degenerative disc disease and arthritis when I was 34. I am wondering how common this is for my age?

Dr. Ronald Krauser

Uncommon: Osteoporosis at that age needs a thorough evaluation to look for underlying causes. It is rarely present without an underlying reason.
