Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition seen by a decline in the thickness of bone, diminishing its strength and bringing about delicate bones. Osteoporosis prompts strangely permeable bone that is compressible, similar to a sponge. This issue of the skeleton debilitates the bone and results in frequent fractures in the bones. Prevention includes a proper diet throughout childhood and efforts to avoid medications that cause the condition and regular exercise. Lifestyle changes like stopping smoking and not drinking alcohol might facilitate. The most common injuries in people with osteoporosis are wrist fractures, hip fractures and fractures of the spinal bones.
