Osteoporosis, which means "porous bones," causes bones to become weak and brittle - so brittle that even mild stresses like bending over, lifting a vacuum cleaner or coughing can cause a fracture. In most cases, bones weaken when you have low levels of calcium, phosphorus and other minerals in your bones. Osteoporosis can also accompany endocrine disorders or result from excessive use of drugs such as corticosteroids.

It can happen without warning - you bend over to pick up the morning paper and feel a searing pain in your side. Later you learn you've fractured a rib. If you're an older adult, your fracture may be the result of osteoporosis.

Treatment measures

Drugs generally used are

  • Conjugated estrogens.

  • Calcium and vitamin D

  • Proper management of fractures, if present

Prognosis

is good with follow-up of proper medical treatment.

How can Osteoporosis be prevented?

 It can be prevented by

  • Eating a balanced diet rich in Calcium and vitamin D throughout one's life.

  • Calcium supplementation during pregnancy, breast-feeding and after menopause.

  • Regular exposure to moderate amounts of sunlight. People exposed to little sunlight may need to take vitamin D supplements.

  • Walking and other forms of regular, moderate, weight-bearing exercise.

  • No smoking.

  • Limiting alcohol consumption.

  • Regular bone density measurement: especially in presence of risk factors.
