What is Osteoporosis?Bones are constantly changing.
Normally, there is a balance between cells removing old bone and those creating new bone.
When you have osteoporosis, more bone is removed than is replaced resulting in bone loss. Your bones are thinner, weaker and more likely to break.
1 in 4 women and at least 1 in 8 men over the age of 50 years have osteoporosis
At least 1 in 3 women will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture during their lifetime
It is a bone disease and not a normal part of aging.
Called “the silent thief,” because bone loss may occur without symptoms.
First sign of osteoporosis is often a broken bone.
A fragility fracture is a bone break caused by a minor fall (from a standing height or less), or from daily activities (lifting groceries, getting out of bed). A fragility fracture significantly increases the risk of future fractures.
