In this blog about bone health, Can you imagine that from the age of thirty, humans gradually begin to shrink in size? Osteoporosis is a condition in which there is a decrease in the amount and thickness of bone tissue. Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses such as bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. Osteoporosis-related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist, or spine. Bone is living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone doesn’t keep up with the loss of old bone. Osteoporosis affects men and women of all races. But white and Asian women, especially older women who are past menopause, are at highest risk. Medications, healthy diet, and weight-bearing exercise can help prevent bone loss or strengthen already weak bones.
