Osteoporosis is a common bone disease that causes the bones to become weak, fragile, and prone to fractures that happen even due to a minor fall or injury. The most common fractures that happen due to osteoporosis are hip fractures, wrist fractures, and fractures of the vertebrae. It affects both men and women. However, it is much more common within women, especially during the postmenopausal period. It has been estimated that more than 44 million adults, aged 50 and older, in the United States alone have been diagnosed with osteoporosis each year. More than 500,000 people are hospitalized every year as a result of fractures that have occurred due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis Treatment is available at Achira Endocrinology.
Excessive drinking and smoking, prolonged use of certain medications, low Body Mass Index (BMI), and certain health issues raise the risk of osteoporosis. Usually, most people are not aware of struggling with osteoporosis until they suffer an injury and a fracture as a result of it. Severe osteoporosis can cause a rib fracture while sneezing and/or coughing, in addition to causing back and neck pain, as well as, loss of height.
Osteoporosis is diagnosed by using the DEXA scan, which measures your bone mineral density and is proven helpful when used to track the progress of your osteoporosis. The treatment plan for osteoporosis aims to prevent and treat fractures and strengthen the bones. A well-balanced diet, regular exercise, and daily supplementation with Vitamin D, and calcium, as well as quitting smoking, drug, and alcohol use can help prevent osteoporosis efficiently.
