Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone cannot keep up with the removal of old bone. As a result, holes and weakened areas are formed in the bone which can lead to fractures, pain and a Dowager’s bump.
Symptoms of osteoporosis include bone fracture, back pain, loss of height over time and a stooped posture. In early stages of bone loss, it usually develops unnoticed over many years with no symptoms or discomfort.
Causes of osteoporosis include aging, hormonal imbalances, inactivity, underweight, medications and nutrition deficiencies. Women over 50 of Caucasian or Asian race have higher risk of developing osteoporosis.
