Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disorder in which bone tissue breaks down, making the bone become 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.
