What causes osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a bone disease causing weakened bones, which, in turn, fracture and break more easily than healthy bone. This disease is frequently seen in older women but can occur in men as well. While doctors can test bone density to pinpoint the disease, osteoporosis is often diagnosed after a broken bone, as there are usually no visible symptoms.
Risk factors associated with osteoporosis include:
- Smoking and heavy drinking
- Low lifetime calcium intake
- A thin and/or petite frame
- Family history
- Caucasian or Asian ethnicity
Those who develop osteoporosis are at a higher risk for injury when it comes to falls or other accidents. Because bones can easily become damaged under stress, it’s vital to strengthen the body to protect yourself from injury.
