Can my general doctor help manage my osteoporosis?

Yes. Your general practitioner develops a strong bond with their patients, they are quite familiar with their medical history and are great at being a liaison for chronic illness management. If your treatment becomes too extensive, your provider will discuss seeing another healthcare professional specializing in your current chronic illness. Osteoporosis can be managed by your general practitioner through density scans and medications.

Osteoporosis usually presents in postmenopausal women but can also be found in men. At all times the body is absorbing and replacing bone. In patients with osteoporosis the bone is not being replaced as fast as it is absorbed and so you have a honeycombing of the bone which makes it weak and susceptible to fractures. Estrogen is a hormone that helps protect against excessive bone loss which is why post-menopausal women are most susceptible to this brittle bone disease. Symptoms include:

  • Loosing height as you age
  • Pain in the lower back
  • Slouching forward/ change in posture
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fractures

There are also some medical conditions which could cause the disease.

  • Overactive thyroid, adrenal glands, or parathyroid
  • Certain blood disorders like multiple myeloma
  • Celiac or IBS (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
  • Hormonal treatments for prostate or breast cancer
  • Bariatric (weight loss surgery)

Whether your chronic illness is due to aging, underlying disease, or medications your practitioner can help you diagnose, treat, and manage an array of illness. Density scans, supplementations, imaging, and blood work gives each provider a better understanding of the patient’s physiology.

Can my doctor test people for celiac disease?

Celiac can present as many other illnesses such as IBS, SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), or even a parasitic infection. Your doctor can test you for celiac by taking a routine blood sample and having it tested at a nearby reference lab. If you believe you have celiac, but the test comes back negative, it does not mean you are not allergic or have a sensitivity to wheat. If all other intestinal issues have been ruled out, you should try and elimination diet to see if there is a certain food causing your issues. This is when you remove a particular food group for a couple weeks and see if symptoms resolve, if you re-introduce the food and you begin to have a reaction again, you can be certain that you have developed a food allergy. Your doctor can help you narrow down what is causing your IBS symptoms and give you a guide and resources for performing elimination diets or they can help you keep and manage a food journal.
