QUESTION 2 Explain, in your own words, how Alyssa's loss of height could be related to her possible osteoporosis diagnosis. Alyssa is a 74-year-old female patient who presents to her

primary care provider for a routine physical. She states that she feels"quite healthy" and has no complaints other than mild back pain. She has a family history of various cancers, diabetes, and osteoporosis, so she knows that it is important to stay active and keep up with screenings and annual physical exams.Alyssa's provider finds that she has lost 10 pounds since last year's exam. She is almost a full inch shorter, as well.
