Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass and increased bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. Adequate calcium, vitamin D, and other nutrients are critical to achieving optimal peak bone mass and modify the rate of bone loss with aging. After menopause, women experience rapid bone loss due to declining estrogen levels. Hormone replacement therapy, in conjunction with calcium, has been shown to be effective in reducing bone loss. Although less common in men, prolonged use of medications such as glucocorticoids as well as other factors may lead to osteoporosis in men.
