Are there other reasons to have a DXA scan besides age?

Sometimes a patient is asked to have a scan at a much earlier age due to medications they are taking or because of family history.  Certain medications such as Depo Provera, Femara, Arimidex anti-convulsant medications, steroids, or antacids can cause bone loss.
