Porous Bone Disease

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition of decreased bone mass. This leads to fragile bones that are at an increased risk for fractures. In fact, it will take much less stress on an osteoporotic bone to cause it to fracture than it would on a healthy bone.

Who is at risk of Osteoporosis?

Some of the most common osteoporosis risk factors include

Female Gender

Family history of osteoporosis

Being Older

History of broken bones

Inactive lifestyle

Smoking

Eating a diet low in calcium and Vitamin D

What Are the Symptoms of Osteoporosis?

There are usually no specific symptoms that alert you to the presence of osteoporosis early on in its progression.

You may feel a dull pain in your bones or muscles at the onset of the disease. But in most people, fracture is the first event which hints towards the background osteoporosis. These fractures may lead to loss of height, and you may notice yourself hunching forward. Though these finding are seen in very advanced stages of osteoporosis.
