About Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes the bones to become thin and weak. It occurs mostly in women after menopause. That's because the female hormone oestrogen helps women maintain bone strength. As oestrogen levels decline, bone is lost. Osteoporosis can also occur in men. Other risk factors include: delayed puberty, poor calcium intake, smoking, excess alcohol consumption or from medications such as glucocorticoids.
