Osteopenia describes a lower than normal bone density. It is defined by having bone density lower than 70% of thirty year old females. It is most common in women after menopause.

Unless the patient suffers a broken bone, osteopenia is usually not problematic and does not indicate an underlying pathology. As such, there is a great deal of controversy as to whether the condition requires any treatment at all. It is theorized osteopenia will be followed by osteoporosis, which is a serious condition that is difficult to treat, but the research on this issue does not show a clear connection.
