What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition affecting the bones, characterized by a reduction in bone mineral density and mass and alterations in bone structure and strength. Hence, this can result in weakened bone and an evaluated fracture sensitivity.


What is the Difference Between Osteoporosis and Osteoporotic?

The term Osteoporotic is an adjective that characterizes something in connection with Osteoporosis.


  • Osteoporosis means “Porous bone”. It can be viewed under a microscope, and healthy bones look like honeycombs. If Osteoporosis occurs, the holes and spaces of the honeycombs are much larger than in the healthy bones.



  • Osteoporotic fractures result from Osteoporosis, a condition characterized by the increased fragility of bones caused by either bone deterioration or low bone mass.
  • Osteoporotic fractures can arise with minimal trauma, such as a strain, bump or fall. Osteoporotic has lost density or mass and contains abnormal tissue structure.

Osteoporosis Causes

Osteoporosis occurs due to the loss of excessive bone mass and alterations in the structure of bone tissues. The presence of specific risk factors can contribute to the onset of Osteoporosis or heighten the probability of developing this condition.

Numerous individuals with Osteoporosis possess multiple risk factors, while some of the individuals who develop Osteoporosis may not exhibit any specific risk factors. Certain risk factors are immutable and some others are adjustable. You can prevent fractures and diseases by understanding these factors.

Several factors can elevate your risk of Osteoporosis, they are as follows


Compared to men, women are more likely to develop Osteoporosis due to their lower peak bone mass and smaller bones. Nevertheless, men are also at risk of this condition, particularly after reaching the age of 70.


With advancing age, the loss of bones accelerates, and the processing of the new bones slows down. Consequently, the strength of your bones diminishes over time, increasing your vulnerability to Osteoporosis.

Body Size

Individuals with slim body structures or easily broken bone structures face a higher vulnerability to Osteoporosis due to their limited mass than those with larger frames.

Family History

The researchers have discovered that individuals with a family history of Osteoporosis or hip fracture may have an elevated risk of developing Osteoporosis and experiencing fractures.


Starting from childhood and continuing into old age, a diet low in calcium and vitamin D can increase our risk for developing Osteoporosis and fractures. In addition, an imbalanced diet or inadequate protein consumption may also heighten the risks of bone loss and Osteoporosis.


Osteoporosis Medication

The choice of medication depends on various factors such as age, sex, severity of Osteoporosis, overall health, and potential side effects. Before taking any medicines, the Doctor’s advice is essential.

  • Reducing the risk of falls is essential for preventing fractures, especially in individuals with Osteoporosis.
