Osteoporosis

bonecellsOsteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both. As a result, bones become weak and may break from a fall or, in serious cases, from sneezing or minor bumps. Osteoporosis means “porous bone.” Viewed under a microscope, healthy bone looks like a honeycomb.

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, which can lead to increased risk of fracture. Known as the “silent thief”, bone deterioration can occur over a number of years without presenting any symptoms. Unfortunately, if detected at the time of a break, the disease is already fairly advanced. The most common fractures associated with osteoporosis are in the hip, spine, wrist, and shoulder. Today, no single cause for osteoporosis has been identified.

What causes osteoporosis?

 

It's caused by a lack of bone strength or bone density. As you age, your bones get thinner naturally. But some things can make you more likely to have the severe bone thinning of osteoporosis. These things are called risk factors.

 

Age, gender, and body type risks

 

  • Your age. Your risk goes up as you get older.
  • Being a woman who has gone through menopause. After menopause, the body makes less estrogen. Estrogen protects the body from bone loss.
  • Having a slender body frame

Family history risks

 

  • Your family background. Osteoporosis tends to run in families.
  • Your race. People of European and Asian background are most likely to get osteoporosis.

Lifestyle risks

 

  • Smoking
  • Not getting enough weight-bearing exercise
  • Drinking too much alcohol
  • Not getting enough calcium and vitamin D

What are the symptoms? 

Osteoporosis can be very far along before you notice it. Sometimes the first sign is a broken bone in your hip, spine, or wrist after a bump or fall.

As the disease gets worse, you may have other signs, such as pain in your back. You might notice that you are not as tall as you used to be and that you have a curved backbone.

NOTE: If you suspect that you may suffer from osteoporosis it is importanat to speak to your Doctor
