Osteoporosis: Need for Eliminating Bone Breakdown
OSTEOPOROSIS - WHAT IS IT REALLY?
The word 'OSTEOPOROSIS' means 'POROUS BONE'. It is a disease that weakens bones, and if you have it, you are at a greater risk for sudden and unexpected bone fractures.
OSTEOPOROSIS MEANS YOU HAVE LESS BONE MASS AND STRENGTH.
The disease often develops without any symptoms or pain, and it is usually not discovered until the weakened bones cause painful fractures. Most of these are fractures of the hip, wrist and spine.
Who is at risk for developing Osteoporosis?
There are many risk factors that increase you chance of developing osteoporosis - two of the most significant being gender and age.
Everyone's risk for osteoporosis fractures increases with age. However, women over the age of 50 or postmenopausal women have the greatest risk of developing osteoporosis. Women undergo rapid bone loss in their first 10 years after entering menopause, because menopause slows the production of estrogen, a hormone that protects against excessive bone loss.
Women are four times more likely to develop Osteoporosis than men
After age 50, one in two women will have an Osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime
Osteoporosis is responsible for more than 2 million fractures each year... and growing
Osteoporosis: A Silent Disease
What are the symptoms of Osteoporosis?

Loss of height (getting shorter by an inch or more)
Change in posture (stooping or bending forward)
Shortness of breath (smaller lung capacity due to compressed disks)
Pain in the lower back
