Subject: Osteoporosis And What You Should Know About Bone Health
The skeleton, the body's framework, changes as we age, as does the body's capacity to grow new bone. When the body experiences too much bone loss. When the body can not grow new bone, or when both happenstances are concurrent, the resulting condition is called osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is not considered curable. But it's progression can be slowed or halted, thereby preventing more bone loss, leading to injury and even death.
There are diagnostic processes that can assess bone damage, even predict the likelihood of damage based on bone mineralization. Once damage is diagnosed and need assessed a treatment plan consisting of diet a regimen and supplementation, augmented by exercise and possibly medication can be implemented.
- In the U.S. alone, more than forty million individuals aged fifty and older are diagnosed with low bone mass, or osteoporosis.
- Osteoporosis is a quiet condition, often evincing no symptoms until a bone breaks.
- A bone mineral density test can identify how susceptible a person is to osteoporosis and is recommended for those over sixty.
"Osteoporosis is a bone disease that occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both."
