It is difficult to tell osteoporosis from osteomalacia by DEXA sometimes. Osteomalacia does cause bone pain. It can also cause secondary hyperparathyroidism which also causes bone pain. Blood work may be able to detect hyperparathyroidism altho sometimes they do a bone biopsy at the hip. Usually the blood work will be proof enough tho. It is entirely possible to have osteomalacia along with osteopenia or osteoporosis.
