About Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease and researchers estimate that about 1 out of 5 American women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. Osteoporosis occurs when the body fails to form enough new bone, when too much old bone is reabsorbed by the body or both. As a woman ages, calcium and phosphate may be reabsorbed back into the body from the bones, which makes the bone tissue weaker. This can result in brittle, fragile bones that are more prone to fractures, even without injury. The leading causes of osteoporosis are a drop in estrogen in women at the time of menopause and a drop in testosterone in men. Women over the age of 50 and men over the age of 70 have a higher risk for osteoporosis.
