What is osteoporosis and it's risk factors?
Osteoporosis is a chronic condition that weakens bones, making them more susceptible to fractures known as an osteoporotic fractures. It is a prevalent age-related disorder that affects millions of people worldwide, with women over the age of 50 being at a higher risk of developing it than men. Osteoporosis primarily affects the weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees, ankles, feet, pelvis, and spine, resulting in osteoporosis symptoms such as discomfort, motion restriction, and deformity of bone structure and function. It is the major cause of reducing bone density, causing porous bones.
Risk factors for developing osteoporosis include increasing age, a family history of the condition, small body frame size, surgical removal of ovaries before menopause, ethnicity (White and Asian people are at higher risk), hormonal imbalances, deficiency of calcium and vitamin D, menopause, smoking cigarettes, long-term use of certain medications, and thyroid disorders.
