More than one response was allowed.
All respondents with osteoporosis/osteopenia, as well as all remaining respondents aged 50 years and over, were then asked whether they had ever had their bone density tested, and if so, whether it had been tested in the last 2 years.
Respondents who reported having osteoporosis, osteopenia or both were then sequenced to the Actions module where they were asked questions about the number of times they had seen a GP, specialist, etc. for their osteoporosis.
Respondents were asked in a later module about all medications and health supplements that they were taking, but not in relation to any specific condition. This differs from the 2007-08 survey where questions about medication were asked within the specific osteoporosis module.
