What Is Osteoporosis What is osteoporosis? It is a disease that affects human bones, causing bones to lose their density and strength. It is also known as osteoporosis. It can occur at any age, but it is more common in the elderly, and is more common among women. There are voids inside human bones. The size of these voids increases in the case of osteoporosis, and the bone structure also becomes weaker and thinner. Which leads to increased chances of exposure to fractures, and fractures can even occur in people with osteoporosis while practicing normal activities such as standing or walking. Osteoporosis of the ribs, hips, wrist bones, and spine is the most common, and these bones are also the most vulnerable to fracture. Types of osteoporosis There are two types of osteoporosis: Type 1: It includes osteoporosis in menopause due to estrogen deficiency, and osteoporosis with aging due to advanced age. Secondary type: It occurs as a result of a specific, identifiable cause, such as osteoporosis resulting from certain medical conditions or the use of certain medications.
