Osteoporosis

DEFINITION – What does Osteoporosis mean?

Osteoporosis is a bone disease where the bone density is reduced, making the bones fragile and brittle. It can sometimes result in bone fractures.

BREAKING DOWN – Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is caused by age. As we age, we lose bone mass faster than our body can keep up with producing it. If you had a low bone mass during your youth, you are more likely to develop osteoporosis as you age. Contributing factors may involve a low calcium intake, an eating disorder, or gastrointestinal issues. Women are more likely to develop this disease than men.

Symptoms may include a sudden bone fracture, back pain, height loss, and a poor posture. Treatment frequently involves adjustments in one’s diet, such as eating more protein, calcium, and vitamin D, as well as exercise to contribute to the growth of strong bones and muscles.
