She has a family history of various cancers, diabetes, and osteoporosis, so she knows that it is important to stay active and keep up with screenings and annual physical exams.

Which other two factors would support that other diagnosis? • Question 2 Explain, in your own words, how Alyssa’s loss of height could be related to her possible osteoporosis diagnosis. • Question 3 Alyssa’s provider orders a DEXA scan. Which of the following T-score outcomes would indicate a diagnosis of osteoporosis? • Question 4 Why might Alyssa’s provider ask her about her diet?
