Osteoporosis

More common in women above the age of 50, osteoporosis usually comes with no symptoms and is also known as the “silent disease”.

Osteoporosis is a bone disease where the bone structure gets porous and weak. Losing density and mass, bones become more prone to fractures.

A reduction in mineral bone density if a normal part of aging after the age of 35. However, for some, this happens at a greater rate leading to osteoporosis. It affects women more than men on a ratio of 2:1. It is a silent condition as there are no symptoms until a fracture occurs often after a fall.

Osteoporosis can affect all bones in the body, however the areas that are most prone to fractures include hip, spine and wrist.
