Osteoporosis

  • Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disorder in which bone tissue breaks down, making the bone becomes increasingly fragile leading to increasing risk of fracture.
  • Osteoporosis and osteopenia, which refers to low bone density in general, can affect people of all ages.
  • Bone loss in adolescence and early adulthood can be a result of a failure to attain peak bone mineral density, and accelerated bone loss may be particularly noted around menopause and in later years.
  • Many factors, including diet and the lack of proper exercise, contribute to bone loss during these periods.
  • It can also occur as a result of numerous underlying conditions, many of which are often not readily apparent during the course of a doctor visit.
  • Osteoporosis is a “silent disease,” since there are no warning signs or symptoms until fractures occur.
  • Defined in medical terms as a bone metabolic disease, Osteoporosis involves treating and preventing fractures using medication to strengthen bones.
  • The single most important thing in preventing the onset of osteoporosis is preventing falls that can happen due to poor eyesight, poor muscle strength and balance; causes that need to be identified and treated.
