    “Most people will reach their peak bone mass between the ages of 20 and 30,” says Joy Tsai, MD, of MGH Endocrinology. “While some amount of bone loss is expected with aging, it is important to identify if you have very low bone density so your doctor can make recommendations to help prevent broken bones.”
