What is osteoporosis?

In What Is Osteoporosis? the International Osteoporosis Foundation’s (IOF) definition is:

“Osteoporosis, which literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. The loss of bone occurs silently and progressively. Often there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs”.

Menopause

What is the association between menopause and osteoporosis?

Two major factors that affect your chance of getting osteoporosis are:

  • The amount of bone you have when you reach menopause
  • How fast you lose bone after you reach menopause…”.
