Osteoporosis- A worldwide bone disorder

Osteoporosis- A worldwide bone disorder

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a chronic progressive bone disorder that gradually decreases bone density and weakens bone strength, making bone susceptible to unexpected osteoporotic fractures. It is one of the most prevalent age-related disorders affecting millions of people across the globe. Women aged 50 or older are more likely to develop the condition than men.

What happens if I have osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis mainly affects the weight-bearing or diarthrodial joints such as joints of the hip, knee, ankles, feet, pelvis, low back, and spine. A person who has osteoporosis slowly loses bone mass, resulting in porous bones. This can lead to discomfort, motion restriction, and bone structure and function deformity. When we look at the internal structure of osteoporotic bone, it will look like a honeycomb with larger spaces between bone cells, making the bone easily breakable with sudden unforeseen bone fractures.

Who is at risk of developing osteoporosis?

Although osteoporosis can affect anyone of any age, it mainly strikes people in old age, especially women. Following are the risk factors for developing osteoporosis:

  • Family history of osteoporosis

  • Increasing age above 50 years

  • Small body frame size

  • Surgical removal of ovaries before menopause

  • Ethnicity - White people and Asians are at high risk.

  • Hormonal imbalance

  • Deficiency of calcium and vitamin D 

  • Menopause

  • Smoking cigarettes

  • Use of medications for arthritis, asthma, and cancer for a long time

  • Thyroid disorders
